CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Eight public schools in four West Virginia counties have been targeted for closing, contingent on those counties receiving state funding to consolidate schools.

The state Board of Education on Thursday approved the closing of Fall River, Kimball and Welch Elementary Schools in McDowell County; Fort Ashby Primary, Wiley Ford Primary and Frankfort Intermediate in Mineral County; Buffalo Elementary School in Wayne County, and Cedar Grove Middle School in Kanawha County.

The closings were earlier approved by local boards of education. The authority is set to meet next Monday in Charleston.
