Bellevue Soon to Follow.
Last winter the School Board was authorized to secure plans and bids for two white and one colored school, the cost not to exceed $200,000. No appropriation was made, however, but $41,000 has since been set apart for acquisition of sites.
The School Board is now having plans prepared for a new Bellevue School to stand on the site of the Van Lew home, title to which has recently been acquired by the city.
