CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -

The West Virginia School Building Authority has denied Fayette County's request for funding to consolidate four high schools.

Fayette County was among 20 counties vying for funding for school construction projects. WCHS-TV reports that the authority on Monday denied Fayette County's request for $13 million for the consolidation project's first year.

The authority had rejected the plan in September, citing a lack of local support. Authority members reversed the decision in November and agreed to consider the plan for funding.

Authority members approved funding for projects in 15 other counties at Monday's quarterly meeting, including $10.6 million for Harrison County, $10.2 million for Jackson County and $10 million for Raleigh County.
