WVDE math4life Campaign

We are pleased to announce the establishment of math4life: West Virginia's Pre-K—Grade 12 Campaign for Mathematics Achievement. While there is much work to be done to support mathematics achievement in our state, the West Virginia Department of Education and collaborative partners are committed to support a comprehensive effort to elevate mathematics achievement for all students. Information is provided here detailing the states efforts - a true PreK-Grade 12 Campaign for Mathematics Achievement - to close the mathematics achievement gap. A five-year external evaluation will occur to determine the short and long-term impacts of this initiative. The contractors for this evaluation will be selected via an RFP that will be available in the future.

Welcome Back

Welcome to the opening of another school year!  As you are aware, Pleasants County Schools take great pride in maintaining a tradition of excellence.  As superintendent, I challenge our faculties to take ownership of their schools, to foster a school climate that is nurturing and a culture that does not accept failure.  I encourage our students to become actively involved in their studies and in the extracurricular activities at their school.  On the same token, I encourage parents to play an active role in their child's education both at home and at school.  Collectively we can accomplish great work and our students will be very successful.  At the start of each school year, I think it is important we remind parents of certain district policies that are impactful for every student as follows: More +

Children who are healthy do better in school, live longer, have more productive lives and higher self-esteem. Please work with your child’s medical provider, Dentist and school to make sure your child has a great future and healthy smile! Starting in the 2018/19 school year, new students entering PreK or Kindergarten and students entering grades 2, 7 and 12 should show proof of a dental examination and HealthCheck/comprehensive health examination prior to entry into school.

New Lockdown Procedure (A.L.I.C.E.)

Pleasants County Schools has adopted a new strategy for lockdown procedure known as the A.L.I.C.E. plan. A.L.I.C.E. is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.  Prior to the A.L.I.C.E. plan, lockdown procedures involved the staff locking their doors, moving the students to a part of the room where they could not be seen, and quietly remaining there until an “all clear” announcement was given.  The A.L.I.C.E. plan offers a different philosophy in light of school violence.  The philosophy of A.L.I.C.E. is to use technology and information in a way so that staff and students can make informed decisions in a crisis, remove as many people as possible from the danger zone, and provide realistic training so that those involved in a crisis have a better chance of surviving.  More +
