Better late than never. That's what one local school board is saying about work to two elementary schools.
Staunton's school board wants to renovate both Ware and McSwain elementaries at the same time. On Monday night, the board decided to request funding from city council to pay for the projects.
The city's current plan would begin improvements at one of the schools next year, and wait eight years before starting work at the other.
Both buildings are almost 50 years old.
