CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia Department of Education has scheduled its third round of leadership conferences that assist counties in meeting No Child Left Behind Accountability measures. The conference will take place over a period of two days, beginning Tuesday, March 9.  

Superintendents, county board members and others in the education community will gather at the Charleston Civic Center to hear presentations by leaders in the areas of school improvement.  

“We have planned an informative two-day professional development conference that will focus on district reform and school district successes,” said Lydia McCue, Executive Assistant to the State Superintendent. “We have invited excellent speakers who I believe will energize our county teams so they leave with a renewed agenda for success.”
