  • PASS Volunteers Needed!

    PASS stands for Providing Academic and Self-esteem Support.  It is a school-based program designed to boost the academic skills and self-esteem of identified students.  PASS volunteers serve as mentors as well as tutors for these students, providing consistent support, encouragement and modeling.  Volunteers work one-on-one with their paired student for 30 minutes each week during school hours.  If would like for information please contact myself at our main # or e-mail:  lcolbert@k12.wv.us

    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.
