CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Board of Education has voted to approve all but one of a county’s proposed public school closures.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports the state board approved the Fayette County School Board’s proposed closures Wednesday, with the exception of Meadow Bridge High School that will remain open. State board member Miller Hall says she voted to keep the high school open because of transportation concerns.

The school closings will leave the county with three high schools and shut down a few other schools that border with other counties. Other school closures include Mount Hope Elementary, Ansted Middle School and Fayetteville High School.

The Fayette County School Board initially approved the school closings in a 4-1 vote in May.
