Forum to focus on Jefferson High plans
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Concerns raised by parents over the planned addition for Jefferson High School has led the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County to sponsor a public forum on the process of getting new schools built in the county.
The forum is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Wright Denny Intermediate School Auditorium in Charles Town.
"We think one of the things the league does best is hold forums on issues of interest to the community," said Lyn Widmyer, education chair for the local chapter.
"The whole issue started hitting the community on whether the ninth grade should be added to the high school or whether money should be used to build a second high school," Widmyer said.
