The continuation of Greenbrier County's school levy is on the Nov. 8 election ballot, and early voting at the Courthouse and Rupert Community Center is open now through November 5. Please remember schools will be closed in observance of Election Day on Tuesday, November 8, and Veterans Day on Friday, November 11. The levy, which has been in place since 1974, funds school security (including police officers in all schools); art and music programs; instructional supplies and allotments; capital improvements, facility maintenance and repairs; and personnel outside the school aid formula and maintain employee benefits. Forty-four WV counties have school levies in place. With the approval of a 60% levy, Greenbrier County will rank 36th among those counties in taxpayer contribution to education.

School bus transportation plays a critical role in the education of our nation's students and is the direct link between a neighborhood and the classroom. Each day, GCS transports approximately 2,925 students an estimated 4,570 miles -- a distance comparable to driving across the U.S. and more than halfway back. National School Bus Safety Week reminds us all to keep school bus safety at the forefront.
