The West Virginia Board of Education has identified 32 low-performing schools in the Mountain State that will get additional support to meet the needs of their students.

Officials say the priority schools are among the lowest 5 percent of schools based on student achievement and a historical lack of progress over three years.

Braxton County Schools is the only system in the area identified to get the special help.

State Superintendent of Schools Jim Phares says that officials will work with the schools and their county school systems to make improvements.
