Two public meetings will be held to solicit feedback from the public on the 2014-15 school calendar. The meeting on March 18, 2014, will continue as scheduled at the Mingo County Board of Education. A second meeting will now be held on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, at Mingo Central High School, before the county Arts Alive program.
Based on feedback from the calendar survey, we have developed a list of frequently asked questions regarding the changes to the process for developing the school calendar for 2014-15.
