More limbo for schools foreseen

The Kendale replacement school might not get built and Seven Locks Elementary might be spared but not expanded.

At least, that's the near-term prognosis according to County Councilman Howard Denis.

Six of the council's nine votes are needed to appropriate $3.3 million to fund cost overruns for the controversial Kendale replacement school, and Denis tells the Almanac he doesn't see that side with the votes.

Denis is introducing legislation to stop the controversial Kendale project and modernize and expand Seven Locks Elementary School instead. At present, he says, he doesn't have the votes either.
