Our Pledge to You

At Wood County Schools, we do our best to ensure our students receive a high quality education in a safe learning environment.

We know there are times, however, when you have questions or concerns involving your child.

It is important for you to follow the proper channels in directing your inquiry. By following the steps outlined, you will avoid possible unnecessary misunderstandings and delays.

If your concern cannot be resolved informally following these five steps, the Conflict Resolution Process for Citizens (WVBOE Policy 7211) can be utilized to resolve your concern.

SECTION 504 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Wood County Schools has revised its Policies and Procedures for Section 504. These can be found here.

Step One

Speak first with the school employee directly involved with the event or decision in question - the teacher, the bus driver, etc. You may find there has been a simple misunderstanding.

Step Two

Talk with the school principal or employee supervisor if necessary.

Step Three

If your question or problem is not resolved by meeting with the principal or supervisor, call the Wood County Schools' Central Office representative who oversees the appropriate area of concern (see list below).

Step Four

Meet with the Superintendent of Schools if you feel the matter is still unresolved after following steps one, two and three.

Step Five

Contact one or more school board members (see list below). Use this action if you feel steps one through four have not resolved your problem.

About Wood County Schools

As we prepare for the incoming classes of Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students, and the Class of 2022, we begin with great appreciation of our community that has built and supported our schools for generations. Educators, parents, business and community leaders of all ages have come together to build strong schools, which in turn builds strong communities for people to enjoy and thrive. Working together, we have created schools where high expectations lead to all students achieving their goals. We must continue to do more than imagine what our children will do to keep our nation strong. We must ensure that they have the foundational tools they need to carry on the legacy for generations.

As educators in Wood County, we do have challenges that require innovative solutions and decisive actions, but with these challenges comes an opportunity to build a better, more efficient and effective educational delivery system for our students. It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the year ahead and with your continued support and hard work, we can assist our students in meeting and exceeding their goals.

Thank you for continuing to support our students, educators, and school communities.
