The State School Building Authority has issued Lewis and Gilmer counties $9.6 million to build a first-of-its kind elementary school that stretches across county lines.

Lewis and Gilmer school officials had requested more than $11 million for the project.

The new school will consolidate Alum Bridge Elementary School in Lewis County and Troy Elementary School in Gilmer County in a joint pre-kindergarten through sixth-grade elementary school.

The SBA says it has listed the two elementary schools as being among the worst buildings in the state.

The SBA awarded $1.6M to Clay County Schools for Clay Middle School to get a new HVAC unit.

Wirt County received $1.4M to help pay for HVAC upgrades at Wirt Middle School.

In all, the state School Building Authority issued more than $37 million in taxpayer money to build and repair schools in 12 West Virginia counties.
