BLUEFIELD, Va. (AP) - Some students in West Virginia will have the option of attending schools in Tazewell County this fall.

The Tazewell County School Board unanimously voted last week to accept out-of-county students, including those in neighboring school districts in West Virginia.

School Board vice chairman David Woodard tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1LkOPeM ) that out-of-county students would be accepted based upon available space at the requested school. The county won’t provide transportation.

Woodard says it’s likely Tazewell County’s schools could pick up some students from Mercer and McDowell counties in West Virginia, along with students from neighboring Russell and Dickenson counties.

The deadline for out-of-county students to apply is Aug. 3.
