Hampshire County Schools Need To Address Special Education

November 9th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Hampshire County Schools Special Education Services are under a state of emergency to address critical areas identified during a recent Special Circumstance Review. The West Virginia Department of Education initiated the Review in September due to a lack of progress on a targeted improvement plan developed by the WVDE. The county has received a “Needs Assistance” rating in the Special Education Indicator of Efficiency for the past three years. This resulted in increased monitoring and technical assistance by the WVDE, however, sufficient progress was not achieved. The State Superintendent of Schools has now appointed staff to on-site school improvement efforts with the current county superintendent.
