Superintendent’s Message

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer and are ready for a new and exciting school year.  The first day for teachers is August 10th and students will begin on August 15th. Pleasants County Schools are eager to greet students and get the school year started. 

There have many facility upgrades throughout the summer, including construction projects in three of our schools: Belmont Elementary and St. Marys Elementary- received Safe Schools Entrances and a new security system and cameras; Pleasants County Middle School- received ADA restrooms and locker room renovations. Principals, Custodians and the Maintenance Department are working diligently trying to complete everything before school begins. 

Summer School, Summer Boost, Extended School Year and Energy Express had another successful summer session. I appreciate all the hard work and dedication put in by the staff and students. Pleasants County Schools continues to provide the very best education for our student through all these summer programs.

Pleasants County Schools had a very successful 2017-2018 school year. All schools will continue to be committed to improving student performance and achievement.  

I would like to welcome back to the board of education Dr. Heather Straight (President), Danny DeMoss (Vice-President), Dave Meeks and new board members, Sherry Maston and Bradley VanZile.  

All great things are accomplished together. I appreciate all of the support we have received from parents, community members, and staff in making Pleasants County Schools the very best. I look forward to the 2018-2019 school year with anticipation of great things to come as we continue this positive journey together!
