Potomac PTA supports Denis plan to scrap Kendale

The Parent Teacher Associations of both schools directly affected by the Kendale project are now in total opposition to the school board's plan.

The Potomac Elementary School PTA has voted to reverse its support for the Kendale project in favor of a plan by County Councilman Howard Denis to stop the controversial plan and to modernize and expand Seven Locks Elementary School instead.

According to the Almanac, "It was an almost unanimous vote with one nay and three abstentions, according to PTA member Diana Conway.

"'It is a leap of faith that giving up a near-term solution will yield a better long-term solution,' Conway said in an e-mail."
