Harrison board wants county's delegates to address education

by Jennifer Biller

STAFF WRITER

The Harrison County Board of Education wants local delegates to consider education when they head to Charleston for the state Legislature's regular session in February.

At Friday's meeting, the board spoke to Del. Sam Cann, D-Harrison, about a number of issues, including an anticipated teacher shortage for foreign language, science and math classes.

"We're hoping we can change our laws for recruiting on the spot for these positions so we won't have a shortage problem like the Eastern Panhandle," said board President Sally Cann.

"Our legislative delegation is very sensitive to our needs and they don't know our concerns unless we tell them," she said.

Del. Cann received input from board members about laws for the board's audit, library fund, hiring practices and disciplinary issues.

He said that opening dialogue between the elected officials and the local board is important in order for Harrison County to continue on toward its educational goals.

"You've got to balance a lot of issues and hopefully come up with what's best for everyone," said Del. Cann.

All the local delegates were invited to the special board meeting and will be sent the information discussed, President Cann said.

The next regular board meeting will be held Tuesday at Liberty High School in Clarksburg at 6 p.m.
