CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Board of Education is seeking public input on a report about how county school systems are governed.

The report recommends shifting some of the counties’ managerial duties to the state’s eight Regional Education Service Agencies. The state’s 55 county school systems would still remain intact.

The change would require restructuring the regional offices. They help counties in their districts apply for grants and provide technical support. Their duties also have included training staff.

The board established a Commission on School District Governance and Administration in March 2013. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin requested a study of how county school systems are governed.

The 30-day comment period will end Dec. 11.
