The West Virginia Board of Education is committed to improving the educational proficiency of all students in West Virginia. To this aim, the Board has developed a set of five strategic goals and several objectives for each goal. The objectives are written in measurable terms and, therefore, provide evidence of the progress or lack of progress in meeting the goals that have been established.
The Board of Education has translated its goals into a strategic plan via designing the plan based upon the goals; developing evidence for measuring progress in achieving each goal; and establishing objectives to achieve the goals. Data in the report was collected on the implementation of activities completed in 2007-08. At least three years of trend data will be retained by the Board for use in developing strategic plans in the future.
