Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance faced questions last week from the Baltimore County Planning Board and Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot regarding the controversial central area elementary school construction plan.

“The reason we’re asking the questions is before the county and state spend $31 million when all we’re hearing is community upset about the scenario, we want to make sure we’ve explored every option for spending the right way,” said Scott Jenkins, a member of the Baltimore County Planning Board.

“No one is against doing something in the central corridor to alleviate overcrowding,” he said. “I want to make sure what we’re doing is best in the long term for all of Baltimore County.”
