The state Board of Education has decided to keep the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind in Romney.
Board members had debated whether the state could save money by relocating the school instead of renovating the existing facilities. But the Department of Education says renovations could potentially cost more than $100 million.
Board president Gayle Manchin says in a news release that the Romney community provides the support necessary for the success of the school's mission.
