Board of Education president says students need permanent teachers
Marlinton, WV – It wasn’t on the agenda, but Pocahontas County Board of Education President Kenneth Vance said another position had to be created for a Kindergarten teacher at Green Bank Elementary School.
The school has two students too many for one Kindergarten classroom and until Monday night’s board meeting, had no permanent solution.
The school has one Kindergarten teacher and one substitute, who, according to Vance, doesn’t want to teach beyond the end of this week. Vance said an extra slot should be created for a Kindergarten teacher as soon as possible, and the board unanimously agreed.
The approved the job creation Monday. Now the job needs to be filled.
