West Virginia's new schools superintendent has taken the oath of office.

Michael Martirano was sworn in Monday, then headed straight to the source on his first day of work.

Martirano paid a visit the newly built Edgewood Elementary in Charleston following the swearing-in ceremony at the state Culture Center.

The state Board of Education hired Martirano this summer to replace the retiring Jim Phares.

Martirano previously was superintendent of St. Mary's County Public Schools in Maryland.
