CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia School Building Authority will reconsider a request by Fayette County officials for funding for a school consolidation plan.

Media outlets report the School Building Authority will take up the matter at a Nov. 9 meeting in Charleston. The school district’s request will be presented as an amendment to its educational facilities plan.

The authority voted Sept. 28 to deny the county’s request for funding to combine Fayetteville, Meadow Bridge, Midland Trail and Oak Hill high schools into a new school. The authority cited a lack of local support.

County officials then filed a lawsuit, saying the authority violated the state’s open meetings law by discussing and taking action outside its posted consent agenda.
