Judge approves Huntsville City Schools changes

Posted: Updated:

A federal judge approved a plan for school changes submitted by Huntsville City Schools.

School officials are required to have plans that involve new school or consolidating schools approved by the feds because of a Department of Justice desegregation order handed down in the 1970's.

Those plans include a new building for Johnson High School. Once that is complete, Davis Hills and Ed White middle schools will merge and occupy a new building on the old Johnson site.

The goal for those moves is fall of 2016.

Meanwhile, a new Grissom High facility will be built on National Boulevard, near the South Parkway Sam's Club.

A new Whitesburg Elementary is also slated to open in 2015.

And a new elementary school is planned for west Huntsville - taking in students from Terry Heights and University Place. It is being built on the site of the old Terry Heights school.

In 2018, there will be a replacement for MLK and Lincoln elementary schools. It is being built on the MLK campus off Meridian Street.
