to meet today
WELLSBURG - The Brooke County Board of Education will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. today to discuss its comprehensive educational facilities plan.
The 10-year plan covers the school district's future plans for its school buildings and other facilities and calls for the school's two middle schools to be merged at one new building near Brooke High School and replacing its six elementary school buildings with two new ones.
The plans are pending availability of state funds and passage of a new county levy, and a specific timeline hasn't been set for them.
The meeting will be held at the board's office at 1201 Pleasant Ave.
