Superintendent's Message - May 2015

As the end of the 2014-2015 school year comes to an end, we have a lot to be thankful for in Pleasants county. This year our students have been quite successful both in and out of the classroom.  Many athletic accomplishments were earned this year through hard work and dedication.  Our students also excelled academically which is quite evident by the amount of scholarships our senior class has been awarded...

WV General Summative Assessment
http://wv.portal.airast.org/students-and-families/ is your link to information about the West Virginia General Summative Assessments. This page will provide you with resources for practice and preparation for the new assessment. This assessment is designed to show what students know and can do at each grade. The assessment is important because it helps teachers and principals make decisions about their curriculum and methods of teaching. 
Updated Bus Stop Schedule
Attached is the new bus stop schedule that will be used beginning the first day the new St. Marys High School is open. If you have any questions about these changes feel free to call the Pleasants County transportation department at (304) 299-5272.  
***New Bus Schedules and Stops***
The opening of the new St. Marys High School on January 5, 2015 will necessitate changes in the transportation of some students to and from school. Buses will no longer be stopping behind the current St. Marys High School, instead we will provide several locations around town for the pick-up and drop off of students. Updated bus stop schedules will be posted before Christmas break online and in the St. Marys Oracle.

West Virginia’s accountability system uses several measures to determine school designations including student proficiency rates from the WESTEST2, student growth measures, achievement gap calculations, and either attendance rates for elementary and middle schools or graduation rates for high schools.
