Prestonsburg Taking Possible New Approach To Schools

Prestonsburg city officials are looking into the idea of building new schools inside the city limits. With a new school system, school taxes within the city of Prestonsburg would then go to the new school district, meaning money could be taken away from the county schools.”We were looking for an exploratory committee, if anybody was interested in being in on it, for an independent school”, said Prestonsburg Mayor Les Stapleton. “No complaints with the superintendent or anybody like that, we just think it’s time that we at least take a look at it.”Stapleton says this committee will be a long-term process that will not reach and conclusions in the near future.
