Last night the site selection advisory committee for Bethesda - Chevy Chase Middle School #2 held its final meeting. After lengthly consideration of private sites, the group evaluated the two remaining public sites, ranking Rock Creek Hills Park above North Chevy Chase Park.
The two park sites will undergo "mandatory referral" review by the Planning Board, after which the Superintendent of Schools will recommend a site to the Board of Education, who would then request the County Council to fund construction.
Rock Creek Hills Park fails to meet the overwhelming majority of the official site evaluation criteria. The site does not appear to provide parity with other middle schools in the county.
