Focus on Leadership
It takes a village to raise a child, and our village is back in control of our schools. On November 12, 2014, the West Virginia Board of Education restored full control to the Mingo County Board of Education. The Office of Education Performance Audits found that issues cited in 2005 had been addressed and our board was willing and capable of leading our schools.
