Weast reverses self again - now says he's against surplusing Seven Locks

Montgomery County School Superintendent Jerry Weast has flip-flopped again on the Seven Locks Elementary School issue, with his office now saying that he opposes surplusing the school.

The Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Public Information Office released the following staement from Weast: “There are no plans to surplus the current Seven Locks school site now and, during my tenure as superintendent of schools, I will not recommend any such surplusing of that school site.”

That still doesn't save the school itself, which the county has slated for "replacement" on Kendale Road.
