pepperb@herald-mail.com CONOCOCHEAGUE - There are 263 students at Conococheague Elementary School. The people who work, play and learn there know every last pigtail-pulling and lunch-trading one of them. That's what they say they'll miss most about the school that's likely to shut down once its neighboring school gets a facelift. The Washington County Board of Education plans to make its decision Tuesday whether to close Conococheague upon the completion of renovations to Maugansville Elementary School, which is not expected before August 2006.

The County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to move $250,000 forward three years in the Washington County Board of Education's capital improvement plan. The capital program adjustment transfers the money from fiscal year 2003 to fiscal 2001, allowing the School Board to spend it sooner in its budget schedule. Fiscal year 2001 begins July 1, 2000. The money was originally allotted for renovation of Maugansville Elementary School, part of which is 63 years old. Two of the commissioners said Tuesday they support a plan to build a new school.
