School Board acquiring property for new Clendenin Elementary School

The Kanawha County School Board approved a resolution to acquire a nearly 35-acre tract for a new Clendenin Elementary School. The Board says it wants to expedite the process of rebuilding the schools that were destroyed by flooding in 2016. The new Clendenin Elementary is scheduled to open in the fall of 2021, while the new Herbert Hoover High School is slated to open in the fall of 2022.
