    It takes a village to raise a child, and beginning December 1, 2014, our village is back in control of our schools. The West Virginia Board of Education voted on November 12, 2014, to restore full local control to the Mingo County Board of Education, finding that concerns brought about during an audit in 2005 had been addressed and our board was willing and capable of leading our schools into a new era of success.
