CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — The Allegany County school board is opting for a new high school in Cumberland.
The Cumberland Times-News reports that the board voted Tuesday to build a new Allegany High School on a site to be determined at a cost of $9 million to $16 million.
It will replace the existing Allegany High, housed in an 86-year-old building.
The decision comes about 15 months after a local committee recommended against merging Allegany High with Fort Hill, the city’s other public high school.
