BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Morgan County is returning about $3 million that the state awarded for improvements at Berkeley Springs High School.
Schools Superintendent David Banks says in a letter to the West Virginia School Building Authority that the school system can't provide its share of the project's cost.
County voters rejected a school levy in May. Banks says the levy will be put before voters again during the May 2014 primary election.
Authority executive director Mark Manchin tells The Journal (http://bit.ly/1ft3frm) that the money will be given to other school projects in the state.
Manchin says the authority likely would fund Morgan County's project again. But its future could be in jeopardy if voters reject the levy a second time.
