PRINCE EDWARD — On Monday, the Prince Edward County School Board held a special meeting to determine the exact process for gathering community input regarding the next superintendent of Prince Edward’s schools.

According to Buffalo District Representative Board Chairman Russell Dove, BWP’s consultants provided the board members information regarding the exact process for gathering the information from the community forums.

In doing this, some of the larger employers within the county were sought out. “We want the community involved in the process,” said Dove.
