Educational staff in West Virginia must adhere to both federal and state protections regarding data privacy.

Logic modeling for program planning and evaluation
Developing and using a logic model can help increase stakeholders’ voices in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of programs. The process of developing the model is an opportunity to chart the course. As explained by the Kellogg Foundation, “It is a conscious process that creates an explicit understanding of the challenges ahead, the resources available, and the timetable in which to hit the target. In addition, it helps keep a balanced focus on the big picture as well as the component parts.”
To schedule training or facilitation of logic modeling, contact the Office of Data Management and Information systems at 304-558-8869.
