STAUNTON, Va. (WVIR) -

School leaders are once again discussing more new construction for Staunton’s Lee High School, and they think it’s feasible.

Superintendent Garett Smith shared the news during the meeting on Monday, April 9. Smith says school leaders are working with Charlottesville architect firm Crabtree Rohrbaugh and Associates.

Ideas include leaving the auditorium and gym, possibly the cafeteria, and then demolishing the rest of the school to build from scratch.

"Within those options and within our $40 million budget to have a school that's mostly new construction and less renovation, and we think we can get it done,” says Smith. “And we feel that by meeting every week, discussing every possible option, asking all the hard questions, that there's a way we can do this."

The school board also recognized the following teachers and support staff of the year:

  • Bessie Weller Elementary  -- Sarah Fauber and Lisa Godsey
  • McSwain Elementary -- Jessica Herr and Cindy Guertler 
  • Ware Elementary -- Donte' Montague and Nancy Staton 
  • Shelburne Middle -- Terri Sorber and Tabitha Bartley 
  • Lee High -- Rosanne Wykes and Gladys Campbell
  • Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center -- Timothy Copeland
  • Bus Driver of the Year -- William "Bill" Davick

Meeting leaders recognized Lee's basketball team for an outstanding season as well.
