The director of instructional services for Loudoun County,Tim Flynn, noted, “This could be a hub for student and teacher research, a center for adult education, a testing center, summer STEM academies and more,” Flynn said. “The academy could offer plenty of opportunities to pay for itself. If possible we would never had to turn the lights off.”
