CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County Schools officials are hoping to start construction of two new elementary schools in the county, Pete Dougherty, president of the Jefferson County Board of Education, said Wednesday.

The school system would like to start construction on one school next year, and possibly start building the second one in 2009, Dougherty said.

It is hoped the schools would be completed by 2010, Dougherty said.

School officials mentioned the two elementary schools Wednesday morning during a meeting between the board of education and the Jefferson County Commission at the board of education's office.

The government bodies were talking about ways to pay for cost increases at the new Washington High School.

Dougherty declined to say where the elementary schools might be built for fear that it could affect the price the school system might have to pay for land.
