SNOW HILL – Plans for a new Showell Elementary School failed to move forward this week as county officials couldn’t agree how to proceed.
On Tuesday, neither a motion to approve the concept plan for the new school nor a motion to reconsider the plan in October passed.
“There’s no way I can say it was anything but disappointing,” said Jonathan Cook, president of the Worcester County Board of Education.
Cook, who attended the meeting with a group of school system officials, parents and teachers, said he was asked to arrive at 1 p.m. for the presentation of the concept plan for a new Showell Elementary School. A lengthy discussion on body piercing legislation, however, pushed the presentation back until after 2 p.m.
