This directory consists of profiles of more than 500 companies and organizations which responded to a West Virginia Education Fund survey during the summer of 1990. The purposes of the directory are: (1) to provide a reference that helps educators locate resources from business, industry and community groups; (2) to initiate and facilitate cooperation between schools and businesses; and (3) to help corporations and community organizations discover opportunities for direct involvement in improving education. Each entry includes the name of the company or organization, address, the contact person and phone number, a summary of educational services, resources, and financial aids available to schools, and other administrative information. The directory is organized by the following general categories: (1) Arts and Cultural Organizations; (2) Community Service Organizations; (3) Educational Institutions; (4) Financial Institutions; (5) Food Services; (6) Government Agencies; (7) Manufacturers and Procedures; (8) Media and Advertising; (9) Medical and Health Services; (10) Retail Goods & Professional Services; (11) Travel and Leisure; and (12) Utilities. Also provided is an index grouping the profiles according to Regional Education Service Agency regions so teachers may easily locate educational services and resources available within their geographic areas.
