Clayton delays groundbreaking of new STEM school because of rain 

Clayton County Schools on Monday postponed this week’s groundbreaking of a new elementary school offering a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics or STEM program because of inclement weather.

The district had planned to hold a groundbreaking ceremony on the new school on Wednesday, but decided to cancel because of rain forecast for much of this week.

“District leaders are currently working to identify a new date to host the groundbreaking ceremony and will provide updates as plans are finalized,” the school system said in a release.

The school is set to become the new home for pupils attending Eddie White Elementary School.
