West Virginia's eTranscript Initiative
The West Virginia Department of Education entered into a statewide contract with Parchment, Inc. to provide electronic transcript services for all public high schools. This partnership allows schools to more efficiently manage transcript requests while also providing students the capability of electronically tracking their transcripts. The e-transcript system has been interfaced with WVEIS, allowing schools a single-step process to electronically send transcripted grades, attendance, test scores. Other needed credentials can be uploaded into the student file such as recommendations, extra-curricular activities, certifications. WVDE's contract includes two free transcripts per student and in most cases, counties who are utilizing the Parchment Services have entered into additional subsidy agreements to allow students to send all their transcripts free.
