FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — The Fayette County Board of Education is seeking state approval to inspect all of the district's school buildings.
The request comes in the wake of the Jan. 12 closure of Collins Middle School's main building because of safety concerns. A month earlier, a building housing the school's gym and a school-based health clinic was closed.
Media outlets report that board members agreed on Friday to send a letter to the West Virginia Department of Education requesting approval of comprehensive structural inspections and air quality inspections.
The school system has been under the state's control since 2010.
