The McDowell County Board of Education is responsible for operating the McDowell County School System in compliance with state laws and within the policies and regulations as set forth by the West Virginia Board of Education. The goals of the Board are to provide the very best educational opportunities possible for more than 3,500 students enrolled in McDowell County Schools. The mission of McDowell County Schools is to provide schools where we unleash the potential of every student every day!

The Board has executive, legislative, and judicial authority granted by law. Primarily, the Board concerns itself with the policies that govern local schools, and the superintendent and administrative staff are responsible to administer those policies.
