West Virginia district breaks ground on replacement elementary campus

Dec. 7, 2022
The Cabell County district will replace Davis Creek Elementary with a modern $18 million facility.

The Cabell County (W.Va.) district is replacing an outdated elementary campus that is prone to flooding.

WCHS-TV reports that school leaders and students have broken ground on a new, $18 million Davis Creek Elementary School in Barboursville.

District officials say the existing school building is old, outdated and unable to accommodate modern technology.

Cabell County School Superintendent Ryan Saxe says the new facility will have one floor and have more space than the existing school. It also has been designed to prevent the flooding problems that have plagued the school.

District leaders tried to close the aging campus in 2015, but the school board voted to keep Davis Creek open.

The goal is the have the new school finished by 2024. It's one of four construction projects that are being paid for with funds from the 2020 bond referendum.
