FISHERSVILLE, Va. (WHSV) -- Overcrowding at one Augusta County school has administrators looking for a fix.
Wilson Middle School has 580 students learning in a building designed for only 520.
Augusta County Schools Superintendent Dr. Chuck Bishop said the county is looking for ways to fix the problem for the current student body.
Principal Don Curtis said he has staggered class schedules so every grade doesn't change classes at the same time, which helps hallway congestion.
Bishop said the county is looking at what can be done to add more classroom space to the school.
"580 students in a building that's built for 520, so it's not that we necessarily anticipate a lot of new students in the future, but we're just trying to have the available space for the students who are currently in that school," said Bishop.
Bishop met with architects Wednesday afternoon to go over how much adding classroom space would cost.
He said the resulting recommendation will be presented to the school board in November.
