Harrison County school administrators are in Lewis County this weekend for their annual retreat.
The school board members meet with principals and other administrators to discuss the issues the county expects to face over the coming school year.
It’s the fourth year Harrison County officials have gone on the retreat, but Superintendent Doctor Mark Manchin says the informal nature is a big part of working together.
“What we try to do as we begin this new school year is create an atmosphere of informality so that everybody feels comfortable, that they can say what’s on their mind, and that’s really what we’re trying to create here,” said Manchin.
Manchin says he’s held similar retreats with other county school systems with good results.
