State BOE continues state of emergency in Lincoln County

The West Virginia Board of Education unanimously voted Wednesday to continue the state of emergency in Lincoln County for six more months.

The Lincoln County school district has been under a state of emergency since the county failed to comply with several policies concerning finance and transportation two years ago.

One specific issue, around 45% of the school buses in Lincoln County have been towed at least once in the past two years. The report found almost no documentation for why the buses were towed or what maintenance was performed.

The state board said they’re happy with the steps the district has taken despite continuing the emergency.
