Partners

The West Virginia Board Education and county superintendents joined the WVDE and more than 40 national and state agencies and organizations to serve as partners in developing the re-entry and recovery plans for West Virginia. These partners continue to provide insight, research support and expertise as the pandemic evolves in the state. The fluid nature of the virus and its impact on our schools and communities require the council of partners to remain engaged moving forward to support counties with guidance.
