MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Two projects for Martinsburg elementary schools have been submitted to the West Virginia School Building Authority, according to a Berkeley County Schools official.
"The Winchester Avenue project is definitely the number one priority," said Maintenance Director Don Mitchell. The administration is asking for the state's help in funding a $591,000 project at the school that would add a multi-purpose room, two more classrooms and restrooms.
A proposal to complete revamping of the heating system at Tuscarora Elementary School on Tavern Road has also been submitted. Mitchell said Wednesday that proposal is for $300,000 to finish replacing electric rooftop units with more efficient gas units.
