CHARLESTON (AP) — Mingo County’s school system will remain under state control.
The state Board of Education on Wednesday reviewed a report conducted in March by the Office of Education Performance Audits that cited improvements in curriculum development, instructional program and the school calendar.
But the report said problems still existed in areas of finance, personnel, facilities, transportation and policy development.
State Board President Gayle Manchin says while the board is encouraged to see progress, “there is more work left to be done.”
The state board intervened in Mingo County in 1998 and again in 2005.
