Superintendent Calls for Consolidating Flood-Damaged Schools

769

RICHWOOD–  Nicholas County’s public schools superintendent has recommended that officials open just one school to replace two flood-damaged middle schools and build another school to consolidate a flood-damaged high school with the currently open Nicholas County High School and Nicholas County Career and Technical Center.

News outlets report that Superintendent Donna Burge-Tetrick made her recommendations during the county’s school board meeting Monday night, explaining that it “saddens” her to have to recommend consolidation.

The superintendent says she expects the county can receive Federal Emergency Management Agency money to build the consolidated schools. She did not provide any information on where the consolidated schools would possibly be built.

Richwood Middle School, Summersville Middle School and Richwood High School were all closed after flooding ravaged the town in June.
