For the 19th year in a row, Wood County Schools have something to brag about. The Wood County School System is the recipient of the "What Parents Want" award from SchoolMatch.

SchoolMatch is a reference database for anyone looking for information on a school system. The service looks into the audit-able data of the school system including test scores, attendance and taxes charged.

SchoolMatch's "What Parents Want" award signifies that the particular school system offers a high quality of education at a reasonable price.

Wood County Schools Superintendent Dr. James Patrick Law says the award would not be possible without the committed faculty, staff and employees of Wood County schools.

"It's a great honor but it is also a reflection on the outstanding work our school system has done for many years," Dr. Law says. "We do have a quality, quality education system."

Nine other counties in West Virginia received "What Parents Want" titles.
