I agree 100% in this situation, there most certainly be should be a consolidation of some sorts in Stanly County. Using broad strokes you would assume West/South and North/Albemarle would consolidate with the school buildings at West and Albemarle HS's remaining in use with a rebranding of names, colors, and mascots. It would be costly but would also save a great deal of money.
I beleive if done right and just, but schools could solidly be 2A schools with the Western school being slightly larger.
I think a complete overhaul of district boundaries should be drawn and hopefully political gerrymandering stays out of the process.
I personally still like the idea of a single Stanly high school.
I agree, put them in the West and Albemarle HS buildings and maybe construct a new HS near Albemarle and eventually move that one there? Not sure if thatd be in the budget even with the saved money, but it's a thought.
One HS in Stanly County could work I suppose, but I think two is the way to go for now at least.
