Unanimous approval was given to closing three schools in the Frankfort District and their eventual consolidation into a new primary school. The hearings were held Monday on the closures of Frankfort Intermediate, Fort Ashby Primary, and Wiley Ford primary schools, effective during the 2023-24 school year. The proposal will hinge on funding from the West Virginia School Building Authority. Mineral County applied for the funding in January, and will learn whether it is approved this month. The next Mineral County Board of Education meeting is set for Tuesday.
