More than 200,000 West Virginia students headed back to school on Monday.  About 17,000 of them are in Berkeley County, where it’s been difficult to build classrooms and hire teachers to meet the area’s growth.

Teachers in the Eastern Panhandle have lobbied for locality pay because of the higher cost of living. That hasn’t happened, but it appears pay raises given to school employees this year is helping Berkeley County retain its teachers, and recruit new ones. Cecelia Mason reports.
