  • Focus on Expanding Opportunities

    Our students deserve to learn and grow in the best facilities possible. The new Burch PK-8 School, shown here in an architect's rendering, will bring such a facility to the Delbarton and Upper Pigeon Creek areas. Students from Burch Elementary School will join their classmates at Burch Middle School in an expansion to the current middle school, which formerly housed Burch High School. The new facility will include brand-new classrooms, library, office suite, and main entrance, with reconfigurations in the existing building and a new bus loop in front. The new facility was designed by Williamson Shriver Architects, and jointly funded by the West Virginia School Building Authority and Mingo County Schools. Construction on the expansion began recently.

    New 2015-16 School Calendar

    After holding two public meetings to solicit public comments on the 2015-16 school calendar, the Mingo County Board of Education voted during its special meeting on April 14, 2015, to adopt a calendar. The calendar was approved by the West Virginia Department of Education and is now official.
