Students can stay at Orlando high school during renovation

Districts backs away from plan to move students out of Edgewater High during construction.

Orange County (Fla.) Superintendent Ron Blocker is backing away from a contentious plan that would have moved students from Edgewater High in Orlando to a different campus during its renovation. Blocker says transferring Edgewater students to Evans High School during construction didn't make financial sense. For slightly less, students can remain on-site while the district renovates the 1950s-era school. The school system also plans to acquire a nearby shopping center and mobile-home park to give the campus some breathing room.
