Kanawha County Schools has no immediate plans for shifting students currently attending John Adams Middle School to South Charleston Middle School.
John Adams Middle School needs seven portables to accommodate all 740 students. County school officials are pessimistic about their chances of obtaining state funding for an addition to the school.
This is the second consecutive year Kanawha County Schools has asked the state to help fund a project to build onto John Adams Middle School. Overcrowding at John Adams and George Washington High School have forced administrators to look at possible solutions, including redistricting.
