MORGANTOWN -

Faculty, students, and community members in Monongalia County came out Monday for a school improvement meeting at University High School.

The program started with a welcome from the superintendent, and then students got the chance to express their opinions.

Students from University, Morgantown, M-Tec and Clay-Battelle talked about how their school is preparing them for real life situations and what they would change about the way they learn.

Community members and faculty also had closing remarks.

"I think this is truly a pulse on the community. It really gives us a chance to hear what's in the schools but we also hear from all perspectives. Normally we hear from the educational people all the time. This gives us a chance to hear from the lay citizen, the partners that we work with, people that might not necessarily have children in the school system but it gives us that opportunity to say hey let me talk to you about our schools and that's what we like to hear," said superintendent Frank Devono.

Devono also talked about the precautions Monongalia County schools were taking for the storm.

He said school was canceled for Tuesday and that workers would be checking the buildings for electrical problems and flooding.
