The West Virginia Department of Education recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic presents unique challenges to student learning. It is important that the school system is flexible in addressing best practices from local and national leadership. We realize that changes will be necessary in the delivery of instruction, the development of school schedules and the administration of the typical school day.

Priority is that every child in West Virginia continues to receives a world-class education and is prepared for their future – whether that be education, employment or enlistment. The information available on these pages will serve as a framework for the upcoming school year.
