WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Wayne County School leaders voted Monday to extend its contract to keep modular classrooms outside Kenova Elementary.
This is so students can continue having class until the new elementary school is built. School officials say the modular units cost about $30,000 a month.
They're needed, though, until the new Ceredo-Kenova Elementary School is ready for students in August 2017.
"They have to go somewhere," Superintendent Lynn Hurt said. "They have to be somewhere for three years, so those kids will be in the modulars. That money is being paid out of the county side. There's no bond money being used. Again, that money was only for buildings."
On Tuesday night, the school board will work on narrowing down the candidates for the district's next superintendent. That meeting begins at 6 p.m.
