The Logan County Board of Education held a special meeting Thurs., July 17, to review updates based on the recent Office of Education Performance Audit’s findings.
Director of School Improvement and Technology Integration Lisa Teeters presented the board with a Gantt chart (a tool used to illustrate the start and finish dates of a project) that has been implemented to show progress on each finding. Teeters said the Logan County BOE that directors meet each Monday morning to provide progress reports in their designated areas.
Departmental updates were presented to the board concerning each of the following departments: financial, attendance, nutrition, elementary education, secondary education, guidance counseling and testing, technology, communications and maintenance.
Another special session has been scheduled for August 7 to conclude updates from the remaining departments.
“We want the best for Logan County students…We’re going to have a great system when we get these things corrected,” Doty said.
The county’s next corrective action plan will be submitted in August.
Three individuals who will be retiring were also recognized during the meeting: Karen Elkins, elementary teacher; Terry Elkins, director of Elementary Education and Ernest Amburgey Jr., Assistant Superintendent.
All three individuals have had long careers in Logan County Schools and will be retiring at the end of July.
The BOE will hold its next meeting on Tues., July 22, at the Ralph R. Willis Career and Technical Center. A special work session with the WV School Board Association’s Executive Director Howard O’Cull will be held at 4:30 p.m. and the regular BOE meeting will begin at 6 p.m. Both meetings are open to the public.
