Part of old Metcalfe County High School to be demolished

EDMONTON — The Metcalfe County Schools’ Board of Education approved demolition of part of the old Metcalfe County High School at its Tuesday meeting.

Metcalfe County Superintendent Benny Lile said only a classroom wing of the building will be torn down.

“Our local planning committee met earlier this spring and decided to build on to the primary center,” Lile said. “In order to move forward with this construction, we need to remove that section of the old high school.”

Lile said the addition to the primary center will not be in the exact footprint of where the wing once stood, but it is in that general area.

Lile also said the board approved making the current location of the central office surplus property in order to prepare for the central office’s relocation to a portion of the old intermediate center.

He said they aren’t doing these items immediately, but they are necessary to approve in order to move forward.

“It doesn’t mean we’re moving out or tearing down a part of the old high school tomorrow,” Lile said. “But there are a lot of hoops we have to jump through to get to those points, and these are just some of the hoops.”
