While the worst of the weather held off this afternoon, it looks like we will still see some strong storms later tonight, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. These storms will likely feature strong winds and hail, with heavy rain and an isolated tornado (mainly possible in the Cumberland Valley/I-75 corridor) being the secondary threats. Keep it locked here for the latest.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - More than $62,600 is headed to the West Virginia Department of Education to cover a portion of the fees charged to low-income students taking advanced placement tests.
The funding is part of more than $28 million that the U.S. Department of Education awarded to 40 states, Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands.
The grant payments are based on the anticipated number of test-takers, among other factors. Federal education officials say the payments should be sufficient to cover all but $18 of the cost of each advanced placement exam taken by a low-income student.
