West Virginia educators are provided with a variety of ways to mature professionally as they strive to enhance their student support skills. As they advance, it will become necessary to renew licensure and understand educator evaluations. The West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards set the mark for what our educators are expected to know and be able to do in the classroom. Qualifying individuals may use state tuition reimbursement to pursue additional endorsement areas on a professional certificate.

The math4life initiative assists teachers in preparing to take WVBE required Praxis exams for mathematics endorsements. The e-Learning initiative for educators is designed to bridge the barriers of time, distance, and inequities for all West Virginia teachers by providing access to excellent web-based professional development opportunities. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards further challenges and incentivizes elevating the level of instruction that our students receive from their teachers. ReClaimWV supports our educators in meeting the basic neurological, biological, psychological, and social emotional needs of our students.
