    Educating the whole child goes well beyond books and papers. Students in all Mingo County schools enjoy a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no cost of their own thanks to the Community Eligibility Option. A grant provides fresh fruits for snacks to most elementary students, with school-made food served at nearly every lunch. Students are encouraged to take charge of their own well-being at an early age, with the Mingo County Diabetes Coalition partnering with schools to promote before or after school walks and 5K runs within the community.

    New Policies available for comment

    Policies regarding the employment of substitute professional and service employees and the lateral transfer of professional personnel are available for comment. The public is encouraged to review the policy and comment online.

    New Staff development survey

    The county staff development councils asked that all regular and substitute employees complete a short survey. Please complete this survey by Friday, December 9, 2016.
