Kentucky districts scramble to recover from tornado damage

March 9, 2012
School has been disrupted for thousands of students

From The Lexington Herald-Leader: Eastern Kentucky school districts that were hammered by last week's tornadoes and thunderstorms are hoping to reopen next week, but some of the worst hit still are scrambling to find places for their students to go. Educators say the school year has been significantly disrupted for thousands of students. West Liberty Elementary and the central offices of Morgan County Schools were so badly damaged that both have been condemned, a district spokeswoman says. The district's football field, bleachers, locker rooms and press box were destroyed. Meanwhile, Magoffin County Schools might face an even bigger challenge. Major storm damage to Herald Whitaker Middle School and Salyersville Grade School have left more than a third of the district's 2,100 students with no place to attend classes.
