Pleasants County Schools is dedicated to meeting the unique learning needs of every student.  Special education services provide individualized instructional supports to students who qualify under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and WVBE Policy 2419.

Qualifying students ages 3-21 are educated in accordance with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), developed by a team that includes parents, educators, specialists, and the student (if appropriate).  The purpose of the IEP team is to ensure that each student’s unique learning needs are met, and that he/she is afforded every opportunity to reach maximum potential!

Access to related services such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy; a full-continuum of services ranging from self-contained to full-time in the general education setting; and highly motivated, knowledgeable, and caring teachers and staff, all contribute to effective instruction and growth for students with disabilities. 

Specially designed instruction is also provided to students who qualify for services in gifted education.  A centralized program (located at St. Marys Elementary School) serving qualifying students from Belmont Elementary and St. Marys Elementary is designed to enable these students to collaborate and grow with other students with similar talents and skills.  The middle school gifted program focuses on fostering continued growth and deeper understanding in areas of demonstrated talent for each student.  Programming in honors and college level coursework at the high school level ensures that students are prepared and ready to accomplish their academic and career goals.

From  our youngest learners  just beginning their educational careers, to the young adults transitioning to life beyond public schools, PCS is proud and honored to be part of the journey!
