Expected opening for 2 West Virginia schools delayed again
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The expected opening of two West Virginia schools that had been severely damaged by flooding nearly three years ago has been delayed again.
News outlets report the Kanawha County school board said Herbert Hoover High School and Clendenin Elementary won’t be completed for at least another year. June will mark three years since those schools were severely damaged by flooding.
Clendenin Elementary is scheduled to open in the fall of 2021, and Herbert Hoover won’t open until the fall of 2022.
County school system spokeswoman Briana Warner says the delay is to make sure that they get Federal Emergency Management Agency funding and go through every step of the process in the correct way. She says the new time frame will not cause a loss in funding.
