LOGAN – The Logan County Board of Education (LBOE) approved items for 18 schools, which were part of the Local School Improvement Council (LSIC) presentation.
The LSIC meets, determines what the schools need, then follows up with meetings at the LBOE.
LBOE Superintendent Wilma Sigmund said, “The schools submit a list of needs through the LSIC, and then meetings are held to determine what the priorities are. We try to make sure everybody gets taken care of.”
