School Districts in West Virginia Request Security Funds
The state School Building Authority (SBA) in West Virginia will select several projects for funding during a meeting set for Monday in Charleston, says a news report.
The SBA has $5 million to allocate under its Major Improvement Projects (MIP) funding program and just more than $1 million under its Three Percent Grant funds program. More than 20 school districts have submitted projects in hopes of getting some of the MIP money.
Barbour County Schools is seeking nearly $300,000 to upgrade bathrooms and security at Philippi Elementary School and Kanawha County Schools is seeking up to $1 million to improve the safety at Alum Creek Elementary, says the report.
Other MIP projects include a $700,000 request from the Lincoln County BOE for HVAC controls and security system improvements at Lincoln County High School and McDowell County requested $1 million for new HVAC controls at Mount View High School.
