Mercer County Schools prepares for next year's school calendar changes


(WVVA)- A meeting was held to discuss proposed changes to Mercer County's school calendar for next year.

Earlier last year, the West Virginia legislature passed a bill requiring all West Virginia schools to provide students with 180 days of instruction, regardless of inclement weather.

Kellan Sarles with Mercer County Schools tells us that school officials will create a calendar which is best for the students through working with parents.

The meeting was the first of two meetings on the subject for Mercer County Schools.
