CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The new $9.6 million ninth-grade center being built beside Jefferson High School should be ready for use by July 1, a school official said Tuesday night.

The school's roof, exterior walls and other exterior features should be completed by Friday, as well as sidewalks and curbs, said John H. Norman, coordinator of facilities management and construction for Jefferson County Schools.

School officials have said they expected to have the school ready for students by August.

The school, which is being built to free up space in elementary schools for all-day kindergarten, will serve all ninth-grade students from the county's junior high schools. The junior high schools will then be converted into middle schools serving sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders.
