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 disabilitites, please access: Hand in Hand
