Posted: April 11, 2003
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia Board of Education wants to know more about what students are doing before and after school. A highly successful program at Hinton Area Elementary School in Summers County will be highlighted during the monthly Board of Education meeting. The presentation is scheduled for 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 16, 2003 at James Monroe High School in Monroe County, West Virginia.
Board members will learn more about the impact that programs like Kids in Dramatic Studies have on students. Kids in Dramatic Studies was created in 1996 and is open to all students at Hinton Area Elementary.
“As the Board of Education, we want more parents to know about before and after school programs so that their children have the opportunity to participate in the additional meaningful instructional time,” said Board Member Barbara Fish.
The Board of Education has also requested a report from the Department of Education on all before and after school programs currently active within the state educational system.
