Covington and Alleghany County leaders create school consolidation committee

By Lindsey Ward - Anchor

Leaders in Alleghany County and the city of Covington discuss school consolidation.

Two members from the Alleghany County Board of Supervisors, Covington City Council and both local school boards have formed a committee to discuss the idea.

As we've reported back in 2011 voters in both the county and city turned down a government consolidation.

This recent discussion will focus only a possible joint school system.
