PIKE ROAD, AL (WSFA) - The town of Pike Road is moving another step closer to finalizing plans for its brand new school system.

Wednesday, a group of residents and architects will travel to Gainsville, Florida to tour a school that is similar to the one planned for Pike Road.

The group will look at how the school is laid out and how a similar model would benefit Pike Road.

As of now, Pike Road leaders are waiting to hear from the Census Bureau to confirm it has 5,000 residents, which is the number needed to start a new system.
