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...

 
Make-up Day Information

As of today (March 24th) we have closed school 15 times due to bad weather (14 instructional days and 1 Outside School Environment that was originally intended to be Make-up Day #1). The 180th day off school now falls on Thursday June 11, 2015. In the event that we miss any more days, we will be reschedule those missed days beginning on June 12, 2015.  

 
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.  
Pleasants County Schools Accountability Designation
 As part of the accountability system, every public school is designated as a Success, Transition, Focus, Support or Priority school. 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. 
Free Microsoft Office
 In order to help our students prepare for success this school year, we’re providing Office to every student free of charge. With Office 365, your child will now have access to the latest version of Word, for writing; Excel, for spreadsheets; PowerPoint, for presentations; OneNote, for organization and note taking; and much more.
