Wood County BOE meets Tuesday for bond call discussion

PARKERSBURG — The Wood County Board of Education will meet 6 p.m. Tuesday to discuss a possible bond call for Wood County Schools facilities.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, residents are asked to virtually attend through the Zoom meetings app. A full agenda and link to the meeting can be found on the Wood County Schools website at www.woodcountyschoolswv.com under Menu: Policies: Meetings.

Those wishing to address the board can register at https://tinyurl.com/v8nrdow. Speakers must address the board in person, though only 14 people total area allowed in the boardroom at one time due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In addition to approving financial and personnel items, the board will receive an update on the district’s Comprehensive Education Facilities Plan, or CEFP, as well as continuing a discussion on the possibility of a school facilities bond being placed on the November ballot.

In early July, board member Rick Olcott asked the board to consider a bond to improve the district’s sports facilities as well as construction of a new elementary school. The board has only a small window of time in which to prepare the bond and have it placed on the general election ballot. No vote was taken or decision made at the July meeting.

Superintendent Will Hosaflook will present updated information on the state’s reopening plan for public schools as well as West Virginia’s proposed system for tracking COVID-19 risk in the state’s 55 counties.
