The Central Valley School Board asked school administrators in November to survey students to gauge which elective courses they’d like to see the rural Buxton school offer next year.

Superintendent Jeremy Brandt told the board Wednesday that a clear front-runner emerged after he polled 67 students in grades eight through 11.

But subject areas that topped students’ wish lists didn’t include the plumbing, industrial arts or vo-ag classes that have been tossed around by board members in recent months.

Forty-three percent (29 of 67 students) who responded to the survey recommended that Central Valley add a home economics or family and consumer sciences class.
