SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. — The first of three votes in the Nicholas County Schools potential rebuilding plan comes Monday.

The Nicholas County Board of Education will meet Monday to vote on the plan.

The proposal, known as the Comprehensive Educational Facilities Plan, includes at least one community school in Richwood serving students between sixth and 12th grades, a middle school and a comprehensive high school.

The first school would be located within a three mile radius of the former Richwood High School. It would include distinct spaces for middle and high school students. The middle school and comprehensive high school would be near the geographic center of Nicholas County and feature an integrated career-technical program.

The plan was created by a mediation team after schools in the county were destroyed in the June 2016 flood.

The state Board of Education will consider the plan on Wednesday. The state School Building Authority will meet Thursday to vote on the proposal.
