CRISP CO., GA (WALB) -

Crisp County school officials received input from the public on plans for a new middle school.

They held a public forum Monday evening after voters approved an extension of the Education sales tax earlier this month.

They heard ideas on where to build the school and officials say they're looking at the current location or a new site on Old Hatley Road.

"The next step will be for the board of education to make a decision on the location of the new school and once we get the location set, whether it's here or the new site, we'll start looking at some building plans and designs and make a decision about what we want to do on that end," said Crisp County BOE Chairman Scott Forehand.

The new school will accommodate 1,000 students and will cost $30 million with half coming from the state. 

The board plans to pick a location within a couple of months.
