Welcome to the West Virginia Department of Education’s College and Career Readiness resource hub for families. This page is designed to provide parents and guardians with tools to help their children succeed in order to achieve college and career readiness by the time they graduate from high school.
Children whose families are involved in their learning earn better grades, enroll in higher-level programs, have higher graduation rates and are more likely to enroll in postsecondary education. Children do best in school if families can play a variety of roles in their learning: helping at home, volunteering at school, planning their children’s future, and taking part in key decisions about school programs.
To assure children are college and career ready when they graduate from high school, West Virginia has raised the rigor of what’s taught in school. To access the West Virginia College and Career Readiness Standards, visit the WV TREE. We also have increased performance expectations on the West Virginia General Summative Assessment by requiring learners to show greater comprehension of the standards.
Family involvement is key to student success in school. Together, we can assure that all children are being prepared for global success in college, in the workplace, and in life.
By clicking on one of the links below, you will find the information you can use to support learning for your child. Families of children in grades 3-11 will also find information about the West Virginia General Summative Assessment, including tips for better understanding your child’s most recent summative assessment results.
