Cobb Board of Education member David Banks on Wednesday recommended the rebuild of Mountain View Elementary School in Northeast Cobb.
His proposal came during a work session discussion about two elementary schools the board must select for replacement buildings in the upcoming Cobb Education SPLOST IV collection period.
The board will take up further discussion of possible replacement elementary schools next month. Cobb school superintendent Michael Hinojosa said as many as six to eight "legitimate candidates" will be identified, with needs detailed.
Mountain View parents and those at Harmony Leland Elementary School in Mableton have been most vocal in recent weeks in demanding replacement schools, citing mold, safety, overcrowding and traffic concerns.
The SPLOST IV collection period begins in 2014 and will continue through 2018. The new elementary schools most likely be constructed in 2015 and 2016.
Banks also proposed the consolidation of two East Cobb elementary schools, Powers Ferry and Eastvalley, as the other replacement school.
