    To be eligible for early Kindergarten entrance, the child must score at or above the ninety fifth percentile on a standardized comprehensive measure of developmental skills when compared to age norms appropriate to a child who would be 5 years old prior to September 1.  This assessment will be administered by qualified Jefferson County personnel.  To enroll a child born between those dates, please contact the Pupil Services Department at 304-728-9236.

  • Students in need of backpacks/supplies may pick them up at SES-it will no longer take place at Jefferson County Community Ministries.  This is for parents who feel they need assistance with providing these.
