The West Virginia Superintendent’s Education Advisory Team will provide the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) insight to understand the landscape facing our educators, staff, and families more fully, while also serving an advisory role during this most critical time of recovery and beyond. With a shared spirit of accountability, effective communication, and action, the Advisory Team will be a part of solutions moving forward to best serve the needs of children and to ensure the education system meets the needs of our state.
