CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The plans for an expansion of Jefferson High School have changed again.
Most recently, the Jefferson County Board of Education proposed building a separate ninth-grade center adjacent to the high school.
But the state School Building Authority has indicated the school system would not receive state funding for the project, said Board of Education President C. Larry Togans.
Now the board wants to build a new middle school and temporarily use the building to house ninth-grade students, said Togans.
The change means the board will have to return the $10.6 million it received from the School Building Authority and reapply for the money to build the middle school, said Togans.
