First Day of School for Year Round Schools in Kanawha County

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- For most students in Kanawha County, the first day of school is still nearly a month away.

However, for some elementary school students, Wednesday was the official kick of of the new school year.

Piedmont Elementary and West Side Elementary School operate on a year round schedule, making July 9 the first day of school.

School leaders at Piedmont Elementary tell they did make some changes at the school this year, including moving grade levels side by side.

"They can collaborate and work together more effectively," said Beth Sturgill, principal at Piedmont Elementary School. "We can also do our interventions in a more effective manor, so students can move between teacher to teacher so they can get the skills they need."

Piedmont Elementary is having an open house on July 17 for parents to attend.

The first day of school for other Kanawha County Schools is Monday, August 11.
