Public School Proud WV

A unified and collective recognition of the significant role public education plays in the lives of West Virginians and the state of West Virginia every day.

How do we show our pride for our public schools?

Transitioning through the phases of the Covid-19 pandemic, we understand that public education has been a pillar of support for students, families, and communities. From providing 46 million meals to children during the crisis, to the administrators, educators, professionals, and school service personnel who remained connected to families while schools were not meeting regularly in person. Public schools have always provided the educational, nutritional, developmental, and expanded resources our children need.

Now more than ever, we are public school proud in West Virginia as we acknowledge everything our schools do to support our children, families, and our state.


Teachers foster relationships with students that can and most often do last a lifetime. By providing academic, emotional and whole-child support, teachers leave an undeniable impact on children that will shape their lives.
