Millions needed to fix Bradley County middle school

Addressing Lake Forest Middle School’s most pressing maintenance problems will take about $6 million, Bradley County commissioners and school board members learned today.

And additional $5 million also would allow construction of a two-story academic building.

School Board Chairman Troy Weathers said county commissioners will be getting letters next week, explaining both options.

Lake Forest opened in 1976 and was modeled after school designs for more tropical climates. There are 18 buildings on campus connected by walkways

The political leaders are also visiting Walker Valley High School today. Principal Danny Coggin said the school is overcrowded only 10 years after it opened.

County officials are being asked for an eight-classroom addition to the high school.
