Wood Schools closed Monday

Wood County Schools will be closed Monday, March 5. as the work stoppage for teachers and service personnel continues statewide.

Wood County Schools Assistant Superintendent Mike Fling said Sunday that Wood County Schools will continue to be closed due to the work stoppage.

The state Senate voted to cut the 5 percent pay raise teachers had negotiated with Gov. Jim Justice to 4 percent on Saturday.

Union representatives said the strike would continue until the Senate honors the original agreement.
