PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Wood County's school system is one step closer to becoming the first in the state to be accredited by the national AdvancED program.

Media outlets report that an AdvancED evaluation team recommended accreditation for the school system on Wednesday. The recommendation followed interviews and evaluations this week.

The recommendation now goes to the AdvancEd board. The board is expected to make a decision in mid-January.
