Presentation Of A Private School Plan At A Warren County School Board Meeting
(WDBJ Television, Roanoke, VA)

Since the public high school in Warren County would likely remain closed for some time, county officials decided to seek a private school option for its high school students. The Calvary Episcopal Church in Fort Royal informed Warren County officials that its educational facilities were available for use by Warren High School students. As for accreditation, the unidentified speaker informed the audience that the Virginia Board of Education had adopted a policy earlier that day to provide full accreditation to private schools that met necessary requirements. In order for Warren County to take advantage of the private school option, it had to establish a non-profit corporation. Residents of Warren County were eligible for membership in the non-profit corporation for a fee of $2.00 or $3.00. This fee paid for cost associated with private school education. According to the unidentified speaker, "this plan" was in operation in Charlottesville. In closing, the unidentified speaker said the Warren committee recommended the adoption of the private school plan.
