Charleston County's school board voted 7-2 to begin a long-discussed career and technical program on the North Charleston High School campus.

The new North Charleston Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) will be built at North Charleston High's Attaway-Heinsohn Stadium, which is slated to be torn down.

The location of CAS has been much-contested, with a meeting last month ending without a decision. Both Garrett Academy of Technology and Stall High School were proposed as alternate sites at that meeting. The school board shifted away from those ideas in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, the board added an amendment to its decision on the CAS, voting to keep Garrett open as a CCSD school.
