Community input to decide fate of historic school near Altamonte Springs

SEMINOLE COUNT, Fla. — It’s been 11 years since Rosenwald School closed its doors in the Winwood area near Altamonte Springs.


It was opened back in 1931 for African American Students. Soon, the school will be open again for the community. However, what it will be when the doors reopen is still up in the air. But it’s the community’s input that will ultimately decide what goes in there.
