During this past Legislative session, a Resolution was passed which has given authority to the Legislative Education Committee to review public school policy for possible rewrites and updates.
The purpose of this review is to ensure that educators have all the necessary advantages inside their classrooms to effectively teach and students have the best possible opportunities to achieve a quality education.
On Thursday July 15, 2021, I am hosting the initial brainstorming session in our area for public school stakeholders to identify possible issues with Chapter 18 of the West Virginia Code (Public
School Law). This is a statewide effort and similar workshops are being held across the state in order to gather information. Educators and Service Personnel from Greenbrier and Monroe Counties are invited to this meeting which will be held at the Ronceverte Volunteer Fire Department and will begin at 6pm. I would ask all stakeholders to think about what policies/law limits your abilities to educate effectively. This initiative is the initial step in updating our public school law to put students and academic standards first. Your input will be invaluable to this effort.
Please put this date on your calendar and I hope to see you there.
Delegate Todd Longanacre
