Schools receive finishing touches

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. Many maintenance projects are near completion in Morgan County Schools.

County Schools Maintenance Supervisor Tom Grove told the Board of Education members on Tuesday night that painting in Widmyer and Greenwood Elementary School and Berkeley Springs High School is almost finished.

The high school parking lot paving project is complete, as well as painting the bleachers, the press box and dugout on the school's ballfield. Grove said the concession stand is being painted and has a new roof.

Grove said he hopes all the projects will be finished before school starts on Aug. 28.

Board of education approves bids

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. Morgan County Board of Education members unanimously approved the bid of $14,121 from Long Fence of Ijamsville, Md., to construct a track fence at Berkeley Springs High School.


Berkeley Springs Glass, Ltd. of Martinsburg, W.Va. will replace the exit and corridor doors in the high school's Arts and Humanities building. The board members unanimously approved its bid of $25,908 on Tuesday night.

Grove said the existing doors were built in 1963.

Twelve teacher spots need to be filled

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. Twelve teacher vacancies need to be filled, said David Banks, Morgan County Schools assistant superintendent.

Five math teaching positions are available, and Banks said the problem is finding certified teachers.

He said he is looking at area universities for candidates as well as retired teachers.
