State Panel Awards Millions for WV School Projects

A state panel has awarded $118 million for nine new school construction projects across West Virginia.

The state School Building Authority approved the grants Monday.

The money will go toward school construction projects in Calhoun, Pleasants, Preston, Harrison, Boone, Upshur, Berkeley, Jefferson and Wyoming counties.

The counties are required to contribute as well. Funding for the projects in Boone, Harrison and Upshur counties depends on voter approval of bond sales to raise their share.

The panel is scheduled to consider more projects at its next meeting in June.
