2 Wednesday, Sept. 21,2016 THE JOURNAL School: Price flusters officials From page I ., f i i !: Washington, D.C., area and has done architectural work on a num- ber of new high schools in Virginia and Maryland. The report called for the construction of a "beauti- ful, welcoming, inspiring multi-use campus for the entire community to enjoy." The new school would be built to handle 800 students, about 200 more than are currently attend- ing W&L High School, which was initially constructed in 1931. The entrance to the new school, which would be built on Kings Highway about a mile east of the current high school, would have cathedral ceilings. The architect's report said the school would include "forward looking" design features including learning clusters, outdoor learn- ing labs, the latest technology, ad- vanced security, expanded parking, seven new athletic fields, a central library and a state-of-the-art audi- torium. The new facilities would be built on 103 acres that is currently farmland. Westmoreland County School Superintendent Michael Perry, through a spokeswoman, de- clined to comment on the report. Spokeswoman Parry Long said Perry would be doing a state of the schools report on Oct. 20 and will publicly discuss the report at that time. County Administrator Norm Risavi said he was optimistic that the board of supervisors and the school board will reach an agree- ment on the cost of the new facili- ties that will be acceptable to the taxpayers. "The architects love to draw stuff that looks fantastic," said Risavi, "but the problem is you have to bal- ance that with what the taxpayers i . ~ ~Fr iii",', "~ ~ k .i | Image coUrtesy of westmoreland County Public Schools The proposed floor plan for the $49 million new high school. can afford and what will get you a Risavi said the board of supervi- "The school superintendent un- fantastic new high school." sors will begin to work On the new derstands that when we have our "There is a lot in this report that school proposal in depth over the meeting, we will be looking to low- will have to be reviewed," Risavi next month and will begin joint er costs," Risavi said. said. meetings with the school board "Preliminary architectural esti- "I am confident that we will be on the proposal in late November. mates are always high.

"One can have a vision of success but to realize that success always de- mands focus and dedication," Bach- man said. "We could not have done it without the coordination of two large volunteer organizations; the Tidewater Oyster Gardeners Asso- ciation and the Stratford Hunt Club. "This festival is more than a hap- pening for wine and good food, it is a statement that Stratford seeks to of- fer a yearly focal point that highlights the best of the Northern Neck tour- ism, trade and economic growth," said Bachman.
