Schematic Plan for the new Spencer Middle School (not final)

The West Virginia School Building Authority granted Roane County nearly $14 million at its meeting on Monday, April 19, to build a new Spencer Middle School. Together with about $1.5 million in local funds, the $15.5 million project is set to begin construction this fall with hopes of opening for students in the 2023-24 school year.

The new facility will sit on the campus of Roane County High School and will be the first completely new school in Roane County since the construction of RCHS in 1993.
