Perry County Plans New School

{Hazard. Kentucky}...Talk about a new Dennis Wooton Elementary School in Perry County began in 2005, and school officials are getting the paperwork finalized to present to Kentucky's Board of Education on December 7th. Perry County Schools’ Superintendent John Paul Amis says more funding has been added to go along with the initial $5.7 million for the new school on Highway 80 just past Wal-Mart. If approved, it could be under construction by early next year. The new school will be a kindergarten through eighth grade school.
