MEMPHIS — The issue of what to do with some Shelby County school buildings is re-emerging, now that a new statute will allow suburbs to form their own school districts.

The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/18bEtdp ) reported the chairman of the unified Memphis and Shelby County school board's ad hoc facilities committee is suggesting a middle ground approach.

Kevin Woods said if the suburbs carry through with forming their own districts, he hopes the countywide system will neither give away the school buildings nor demand full market value for them.
