KINGWOOD — The Preston County Board of Education learned of efforts being taken to reduce learning loss during hard winters during its most recent board meeting.

The county is allowed a maximum of five Brain Freeze days, which they will announce through social media, the board of education website, media and other channels.

Brain Freeze days are not replacements for snow days, but students who successfully complete Brain Freeze day activities will have to make up less snow days, Superintendent Stephen Wotring said.

Wotring said that the program has interested Harrison and Taylor Counties, who have called to find out more about it and said the possibilities are amazing.
