Randolph County's Board of Education has extended the contract of its county school superintendent.

Superintendent Terry George will serve for another three years for the Randolph County School System. George said he's pleased with the board's confidence in him.

George started out as interim superintendent for Randolph County Schools last year after Jim Phares took over as West Virginia School Superintendent. 

"It provides me and the staff at the office an opportunity the plan we put into place this year to improve student achievement, and efficiency of our county system," said George.

George has been with the school system for 35 years. The goals George and the school board have each discussed point to him being a good fit for Randolph County.

"It's proven to be a positive change, and I've been very happy with the success we've had here in the school system and looking forward to continuing that," George said.

Randolph County Schools is working on three goals for the new year. It's focusing on improving student achievement, enhancing efficiency across all departments and locations, and promoting community involvement. George said the number one focus is on the students.

"In order to provide everything the schools need. We have to work to be efficient to make certain that we get the students the supplies they need, the schools and staff they need to be successful and that we're accessible to the buildings principles and communities."

George said he wouldn't change anything he's done in his career.

"I've worked in Randolph County my entire career, and I couldn't find a better place to spend a career than in Randolph County Schools."

George said the school board will be changing the days it meets.

The board will now meet on the first and third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m.
