BOE set to discuss transition plan for new middle school
HUNTINGTON -- Members of the Cabell County Board of Education and the administration will discuss a transition plan for the new Huntington East Middle School when they convene at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 2850 5th Ave., Huntington.
The school, currently under construction along U.S. 60 and Norway Avenue, is scheduled for completion in September. But if there are periods of bad weather, work can fall behind by weeks at a time, particularly until it gets under roof.
Superintendent William Smith said they think they will move in after the second semester starts in January 2014, but have the kids together by grade level at both Enslow and Beverly Hills middle schools. He said all the sixth-graders would attend Enslow, with seventh- and eighth-grade students at Beverly Hills.
Also on Tuesday's agenda is the hiring of two assistant principals for the new middle school. Smith said the staffing positions will be posted in the coming weeks and anticipates all the positions will be filled before the December break.
