Instructional Programs 

The teachers in our Juvenile Detention Centers, DHHR (Department of Health and Human Resources) facilities, and adult correctional centers have access to high quality instructional programs that provide students with rigorous and relevant content. The WVDE (West Virginia Department of Education) approves various publishers for the West Virginia Schools of Diversion & Transition to review and adopt materials on a rolling basis.
