OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) - The state School Building Authority wants to close, build and renovate Fayette County schools.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported (https://bit.ly/2bbdHKe ) the proposal presented Thursday would close Meadow Bridge High, Fayetteville High, Valley High, Ansted Middle, and elementary schools at Mount Hope, Rosedale, Gatewood, Fayetteville, Meadow Bridge, Divide, Ansted and Valley. Other schools would be built or renovated and students would be redistricted.

A new pre-kindergarten-through-second-grade school would serve Oak Hill.

New River Elementary would include third-through-fifth grades. A new Collins Middle would include grades six through eight.

A renovated Oak Hill High would include Fayette High students. Fayette High would become prekindergarten-through-eighth-grade.

A new Ansted/Divide Elementary would be built. Midland Trail High would add middle schoolers.

Valley High would serve pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

The state school board has authority over the plan.
