$31,000 is currently available to help with repairs at Harman School.
The board of education decided to temporarily close the school, after a large section of plaster fell from the ceiling last month.
Superintendent Terry George said emergency repairs were originally estimated at $175,000, but said after further inspection the total has risen to $225,000.
Students will temporarily attend four area schools until repairs are made.
Those schools will be Jennings Randolph, Midland Elementary, Elkins High School, and Randolph County Technical Center.
George said he couldn't confirm additional money coming in from state and county officials to help with the repairs.
