The West Virginia Board of Education passed an amendment in October to remove Meadow Bridge High School from a proposed merger of schools in Fayette County. The plan originally called for Midland Trail, Fayetteville and Meadow Bridge High School's to be consolidated.

The amendment means that Meadow Bridge will not be impacted next year. However, the school is only exempted from consolidation for one year.  In 2014, a study is to be conducted on how to best educate students in the area.

On Thursday night, the public is invited to join in the conversation about what to include in this study.  They are invited to share their opinions at the Meadow Bridge High School gym at 6 p.m.
