HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Everett Withers prepared for more than two decades for the opportunity to be a head football coach.
The Standards of Learning report card is ready — but for parents, it's confusing. Virginia's statewide scores in math improved, but reading and writing test results declined. While some schools in the Shenandoah Valley had dismal numbers, Charlottesville city schools and Albemarle County schools received good marks, exceeding state averages.
A consulting firm hired by James Madison concluded the school was in good position to pursue such a move, but Bourne said he has no invitations in hand.
Athletic director Jeff Bourne said no promises were made to Withers about a move to the Bowl Subdivision, which is expected at some point in the coming years.
