Marshall County Schools Superintendent Dr. Cindy Wigley told the board last week that the county had a “great” first day of school and that everything ran smoothly.

“Due to the preparation and planning of our staff, the start of school was a huge success,” she said. “Under the current circumstances, I don’t think it could have gone any better.”

She said that 29 percent of the county’s students are “virtual students.”

She also reported that 1,729 students are riding county school buses daily, which is about half the number of students who rode in previous years.

During the business meeting, the Marshall County Board of Education approved 26 personnel moves at two meetings – Aug. 27 and Sept. 4 – including nine at Brindlee Mountain schools.
