In Raleigh County, our teachers and administrators are committed to developing meaningful services for students with disabilities working “Hand In Hand” with families to seek and identify children and youth, ages three through twenty-one years, who may have developmental delays or exceptionalities. If you have a concern, you can help your child develop to his or her fullest potential by contacting the Office of Special Programs at the Raleigh County Board of Education where we can provide information about Child Find opportunities. For more information regarding Child Find, please access:

Hand In Hand with Special Education Parent Guide.

Hand In Hand has been developed to assist parents, guardians and other family members in learning more about special education and how they can work as partners with educators to provide appropriate educational services for children. The West Virginia Department of Education believes individuals with exceptionalities, given high expectations, opportunities and support when necessary, will live successful adult lives.”  Dr. James Phares, State Superintendent of Schools
