Bedford County School Board Makes Transition Easier

bedford county schools logoInstead of uprooting more than 70 Stewartsville Elementary students to a new school next year, the Bedford County School Board has opted for a less intrusive option. As part of the redistricting plan to move Body Camp Elementary when it closes, students will split up between three schools next year: Huddleston, Goodview and Moneta. The original plan readjusted Liberty attendance zone lines based on which side of Route 24 students lived on. But earlier this month, the board agreed that those lines not be changed; and voted instead, in favor of a revised plan, which means none of the Stewartsville students will have to move. The board is expected to decide whether to close Thaxton Elementary in the coming weeks.
