Safety and security upgrades main concern for Ohio County Schools


Schools in Ohio County will soon have a bit more cash to play with thanks to the West Virginia School Building Authority.

On Monday, the Board announced Ohio County Schools will receive $9 million for improvements at Triadelphia and Bridge Street Middle Schools.

Superintendent Dr. Kim Miller said this money will be used to provide a safer and more advanced environment for students.

“We’ll be looking for innovative spaces, safety and security upgrades, roof projects and stem projects. Bridge Street will actually have a different look. We’ll now be entering through the actual front of the building as opposed to the back of the building. It’s just a very exiting time for Ohio County Schools,” Miller said.

In total, the project will cost over $11 million, with the County providing 25 percent of the money.

Dr. Miller wants to thank Ohio County voters for helping make these improvements possible.
