Nine West Virginia School Districts Flagged By State For Support

November 16, 2020

The West Virginia Department of Education has marked nine school districts as needing assistance in the areas of finance, special education, and Pre-K readiness after an accountability report was completed ahead of a recent Board of Education meeting. State education officials noted that the nine programs will be receiving direct support from offices within the department and that the accountability report was “not punitive” but meant to help districts improve. Officials additionally noted that due to the cancellation of spring assessments amid the pandemic, data was not available to provide a complete picture of school performance.
