Committee to plan future of education
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Board of Education is looking for 25 people to help plan for the county's education needs in the 21st century.
The group will be known as the Millennium Committee and will look at growth trends to decide if more schools are needed and where they should be built in Jefferson County, said Superintendent David W. Markoe.
Markoe said he believes a second high school and another middle school will be needed within the next few years. Jefferson High School is expected to be at its capacity of 2,000 students in the year 2000, when a new addition is completed.
