STATE AWARDS WV-BUILT ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUS TO ROANE COUNTY As part of the State of West Virginia's commitment to purchase $15 million in new, West Virginia-built, electric school buses, Roane County will receive a GreenPower Motor Company BEAST at no cost to the county. With a seating capacity of up to 91 and a range of up to 150 miles, the BEAST was recently added to GreenPower Motor Company's product line at its manufacturing plant in South Charleston, WV. As part of the State Aid formula, Roane County will receive the full replacement cost of the new bus over the next twelve years, as with all of its bus fleet, and the expenses associated with charging stations and electricity will be reimbursed at a 95% rate similar to current expenses for fuel and bus parts.

EXCESS. LEVY ON THE BALLOT We're one week from Election Day, when Roane County voters will find a school excess levy question on their ballot. While the school bond levy in 2018 asked for support for school facilities, the excess levy asks voters to support student-focused programs and positions that have become difficult to maintain given state funding and enrollment losses. Since 2018, Roane County has lost about 400 students, which in 2024-25 would bring over $2 million per year in state funding. The excess levy asks for just over $1 million per year to bridge that gap. Voters will find the following items on the levy ballot: - Support for continued safety and security improvements and additional PRO / SRO positions - Support for all schools to have full-time counselors and nurses and participate in the Communities in Schools program - Support for additional teachers to reduce class sizes in K - 3rd Grade - Support for student achievement in advanced courses, dual credit programs, FFA, FBLA, band, choir, other co- and extra-curricular programs, and athleticsโ€จ - Support for continued improvements to playgrounds and other outdoor recreational facilitiesโ€จ - Support for student services in partnership with WVU Extension Service and our public libraries
