    This would have gotten a rise out of me a few years ago:

    PARKERSBURG — Wood County Schools administrators are hoping a new virtual school program will help bring some of the more than 800 homeschooled students back to the public school system.

    Superintendent Will Hosaflook this week told members of the Parkersburg Rotary Club the school system has 861 homeschooled students. Wood County Schools has seen a decrease in enrollment of 2,500 since 2001, and Hosaflook said homeschool students represent a chunk of those losses.
