The Washington County Board of Education will hold a special meeting Monday to vote on whether to allow about 45 Allegany County students to attend Hancock Middle-Senior High School.
The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. at the Board's central office on Commonwealth Avenue in Hagerstown, Board President Paul Bailey said.
"We're either going up or down with it, one way or the other," Bailey said. "It's only fair that we do that. Those kids have to get situated with where they're going to school."
The Allegany County School Board voted Tuesday to give students in grades six through 12 from the Little Orleans area the option of attending the school in Washington County or Fort Hill in Allegany County, according to Allegany Schools Superintendent John O'Connell.
