The Office of School Improvement

The mission of the Office of School Improvement is to provide leadership, support and technical assistance to districts and schools by offering a wide variety of services and resources customized to meet specific needs.  The WV Standards for High Quality Schools are the basis of our work enabling schools to see the important connections between the many, small pieces and the big picture of continuously moving schools forward.
