WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School Board started Tuesday night trying to figure out which projects to fund with millions in proposed bonds. The bond will go before voters in November 2016.

Before board members is a long list of projects, school renovations, additions and even replacing aged schools like Konnoak Elementary. Two new elementary schools and three new middle schools are also on the list. What's not on the list is students ever returning to Hanes-Lowrance schools. Students were moved from the school earlier this year after parents learned of toxic waste under the school.

"Currently the Hanes students that are Hanes on the Hill can't stay there," said Dana Jones of the school board. "Can't stay there due to sheer capacity."

The board hopes to have a final list by the end of the month.
