Members of the School Building Committee agreed Thursday there are many issues to consider before a final decision would be made on whether the system’s two middle schools should be upgraded or combined into one unit on a campus potentially near Franklin County High School.

The committee held its second of three town hall meetings on the subject Thursday at South Middle School with about 35 attending.

Pluses and minuses to both proposals were discussed.

A combined campus could lead to more educational opportunities because consolidation and staffing changes could free up more educators to offer advanced programs. Plus, a close proximity to Franklin County High School could allow middle school students to have easier access to high school level courses.

A downside to consolidation is that North and South middle schools have their independent traditions and changing that could be difficult for many parents and residents to accept.
