The first of eight public forums on the audit of the state's education system was held Wednesday night in Elkins.
Governor Earl Ray Tomblin requested the audit when he became governor, and public works announced it's findings in December.
The audit make several recommendations to make education more efficient. The forum, sponsored by Vision Shared, focused on the service delivery section of the audit, including ways to support and improve school building leadership and classroom teaching.
Public input from the meetings around the state and the audit's suggestions will be combined to make proposals for the next legislative session.
"What we wanted to do with the contents of the audit weren't necessarily to endorse or not to endorse the audit but bring together the community for some honest dialog," said Rebecca McPhail-Randolph, the president of Vision Shared.
"There's areas where we can save $90 million but if we can take $90 million dollars and put it back into programs that are working, or expand those, obviously that could be a way to help out the whole education system," said Governor Earl Ray Tomblin.
The next meeting in our area is slated for July 11th in Morgantown.
