SBA to make funding decisions Monday

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state School Building Authority will select several projects for funding during a meeting set for Monday in Charleston.

The SBA has $5 million to allocate under its Major Improvement Projects funding program and just more than $1 million under its Three Percent Grant funds program.

More than 20 school districts have submitted projects in hopes of getting some of the MIP money.

Barbour County Schools is seeking nearly $300,000 to upgrade bathrooms and security at Philippi Elementary School. Kanawha County Schools is seeking up to $1 million to improve the safety at Alum Creek Elementary. The project would move the school office.

Other MIP projects include a $700,000 request from the Lincoln County BOE for HVAC controls and security system improvements at Lincoln County High School and McDowell County seeking $1 million for new HVAC controls at Mount View High School and a new roof at Fall River Elementary School.

Three Percent proposed projects include a roof replacement at the Roane-Jackson Technical Education Center, an HVAC project for the Schools of the Deaf and Blind and roof work at the Calhoun-Gilbert Technical Education Center.

The SBA’s meeting begins at 9 a.m. Monday at West Virginia Lottery headquarters in Charleston.
