A new Arnoldsburg School is soon to be a reality.

Calhoun Schools was notified Monday by the WV School Building Authority that money has been allocated to build a new elementary school at Arnoldsburg.

The SBA is providing about $5.5 million to build the new school, matched by a $2.8 million bond recently approved by county voters.

The proposed site for the new school is a short distance from the old school, but out of the flood plain.

Generations of students have attended the old school, built in the early 1950s, suffering through numerous floods and disruptions.

Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Roger Propst said preliminary work on the new school is expected to commence this year.

The SBA granted more than $120 million in "needs grants" during a session held yesterday.

The agency approved 14 county projects. Five of those are continuing commitments from previous funding cycles.
