Two school systems ask WV School Building Authority for money

Posted:

Two Southern West Virginia county school systems are asking the West Virginia School Building Authority for money.

Wyoming County met with the board Monday, asking for additional funds for a new Huff Consolidated Elementary School.

School Building Authority Executive director Mark Manchin says that project is already funded, but adds the board is expected to let the project go out for bid to see how much money is actually needed for the building.

Mercer County is scheduled to meet with the board Tuesday.  They are asking for $8-million for a new elementary school.

According to the SBA proposal, the new school would replace the current Ceres Elementary and also take students from Brushfork and Glenwood to create Green Valley Elementary.

The board will make their funding decisions April 22.
