The effort to keep sports programs in middle schools in Barbour County continues. A group of concerned parents has formed the Barbour All-County Sports Association.
They have urged the county's school board not to cut the programs out of the budget and have offered to fundraise to help keep sports in Kasson, Philippi and Belington Middle Schools.
The board agreed Monday night to meet with the group in a work session before the next board meeting on February 25th to continue discussions on the matter.
"We're just trying to make sure that they know that there are parents and people in our county that are concerned about sports and are concerned about middle school sports specifically. We hope that we can work together," said Edward Poling, Barbour All-County Sports Association.
The board is looking to make budget cuts largely due to the failure of the school levy in last November's election.
