The Fayette County Board of Education has passed a resolution in support of proposed changes to a plan to fix education facilities.

The Register-Herald reports that the board passed the resolution on Monday in a 4-1 vote.

The resolution states that the amendment to the Comprehensive Educational Facilities Plan would correct many of the issues that exist with the county's education facilities. It also says that its purpose was to give students the opportunity to be in an environment that's safe and conductive to learning.

The plan was developed by the School Building Authority after a capitol planning committee established goals and criteria for the reconfiguring of the schools.

Board member Darrin McGuffin called the proposed plan the most comprehensive the county has had in decades.
