SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. — The Nicholas County Board of Education approved Monday a plan to build new schools by using federal funding.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will put $159.8 million toward the work, with the state setting aside $17.7 million.

The state School Building Authority approved in May proposals to build five schools to replace institutions destroyed in the June 2016 flood.

Two schools are planned for the Richwood area, and two schools and a technical center will be built in Glade Creek.
