ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Orange County School Board announced several decisions made Tuesday night at its regularly scheduled board meeting.

The school previously known as 2-K8-E-1 will be named Wedgefield School. It will be open in time for the 2016-17 school year.

The school board approved a new lease agreement utilizing Showalter Field.

The agreement will be for an initial term of 20 years, expanding the uses to Showalter East and will also allow the city of Winter Park to enter into separate lease agreements with third parties as long as those activities don't interfere with Orange County Public School activities.

Construction of a football stadium for a new high school in west Orange County was approved Tuesday night.

Orange County and the school board entered into an agreement resolving various claims and agreeing to locate the stadium and track for the Relief High School on real property that is owned by the county and that is located approximately 1 mile south of the planned Relief High School.

The School Board said it will continue receiving public comments on items not on the agenda before each regularly scheduled meeting.
