West Virginia's accountability system is designed to provide parents and communities with an annual update on multiple measures that together show how well students are learning, growing and achieving. An A-F grading scale is used to show where schools have success, and areas that need improvement.
On an annual basis, the West Virginia Department of Education calculates grades for every public school in West Virginia based on multiple measures of success.
An accountability system helps ensure parents have objective information on their students’ academic achievement, while empowering state and district leaders to identify struggling students and schools.
Once your school receives a grade each fall, areas of success and areas that need improvement will be identified. The West Virginia Department of Education, RESAs & County School Systems will provide resources and support to schools, parents and teachers to increase student performance.
