The Washington County Board of Education plans to open three elementary schools at a cost of more than $65 million in August 2008.

Two of the schools will replace existing aging schools.

Boyd Michael, executive director for secondary education, told the Washington County Commissioners at a meeting Tuesday that Maugansville, Pangborn and Westfields elementary schools are scheduled to open at the same time.

New Maugansville and Pangborn schools will replace existing facilities, and Westfields will be a school in the Westfields development on Sharpsburg Pike.

Maugansville will have a capacity of 735 students and is expected to cost $21.5 million.

Pangborn will have a capacity of 745 students and is expected to cost $22.3 million.

The School Board expects Westfields to cost $21.3 million. The school will hold up to 745 students.

Developers of Westfields donated the land for the school as part of an agreement with the county.
