Clay school board OKs new vocational school

MANCHESTER, Ky. (WYMT) - Faced with the limitations of their current vocational school, the Clay County Board of Education gave approval this week for the construction of a new facility.

The new vocational school will be built onto the existing high school.

Superintendent Reecia Samples says the current vocational school is located about ten miles away from the high school.

She says right now, students have to be bussed back and forth.

"So it really limits kids that want to take these classes because of that. They have to cut out other classes in order to take those courses," she said.

With the new vocational school attached to the high school building, officials say that will no longer be a problem.

They say the new structure should be built within the next two years.
