School officials: Elbow has to go

March 11, 2013

FORSAN — School officials here believe it's time Elbow Elementary received an honorable retirement.
The school was first constructed in the early 1930s, replaced two decades later and renovated several times since then. Despite all the upgrades, however, structural issues and simple age have conspired to render the building practically obsolete, educators say.
The solution FISD administrators have devised is a $23.8 construction project, subject to voter approval this May, which will replace Elbow with an elementary campus in Forsan, as well as funding renovations at the secondary campus.
