[**ANCHOR TAG**] The fate of the Roanoke Academy for Mathematics and Science is in the hands of the community. The Roanoke City School Board is trying to decide whether to invest 7-point-five million dollars to renovate the school, or spend 10-million to build a new one. Meredyth Censullo has more.

Superintendent Wayne Harris says that's one option he's offering up to parents, teachers and the community - Build a new school...

If the School Board decides to build a new school, they're faced with another dilemma - construct it here, or ask the city if they can build it in adjacent Kennedy Park for use as a community facility. Superintendent Harris says that option would ALSO go to the community for feedback. Meredyth Censullo, News7, Roanoke.))
