Mineral BOE Moving Forward with Frankfort Consolidation Proposal

February 26th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Mineral County Board of Education voted unanimously on Thursday to move forward with plans for consolidating three schools in the Frankfort district.

Three public hearings will be held on March 29 at Frankfort High School regarding the closures and consolidation, starting with one regarding Frankfort Intermediate at 5 p.m. and followed by hearings addressing Fort Ashby Primary School and Wiley Ford Primary.

The board will then vote on whether to close and consolidate the schools into one new facility. The board has applied for funding from the state’s School Building Authority, and expects to receive word in April on whether the request will be granted.
