WOOD COUNTY, W. Va. (WTAP) - The Wood County School system had an excellent 2019, and are looking ahead to 2020 and beyond.
The big change in the new year will be the opening of the brand-new Williamstown-Waverly Elementary School.
Finishing touches are being made to the outside of the building, as well as inside the classroom.
The staff is nearly full, and students are getting excited and geared up for when the school opens in the fall.
"I think everyone will be very very pleased with how the school turns out," said William Hosaflook, Superintendent of Wood County Schools. "The kids are starting to get excited about that move. We started to pull wire through the building like the CAT 6 cable for the internet and things like that. So, that's close, that means it's almost there."
Wood County schools also enjoyed stellar academic achievement in 2019, including one student getting a perfect score of 36 on their ACT exam. They will look to improve upon those statistics for the years to come.
