CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The executive director of the state School Building Authority said Wednesday night he likes Jefferson County's proposed school construction plan which would require $4 million from the authority.
After touring the county's schools earlier in the day and reviewing the proposed construction plan during a Jefferson County Board of Education meeting later Wednesday night, Clacy Williams said he was impressed with the proposal.
Williams would not say whether the school system will get the $4 million it needs from the authority, but he urged the Board of Education to be patient.
Williams said the School Building Authority usually has about $30 million a year to spend on school construction projects across the state, and it doesn't take long to distribute that among 55 counties, Williams said.
