Annual Plan for the Improvement of Educational Achievement in West Virginia, 1978-79.
West Virginia State Dept. of Education, Charleston.
In response to a directive of the West Virginia Board of Education, the State Superintendent of Schools prepared this overview of student achievement in the state which reviews state level activities to enhance school conditions, and summarizes major recommendations for plans to improve student achievement. Indicators of schooling outcomes include data on the 1977 status of 1976 graduates; average Scholastic Aptitude Test scores for nine previous years; average American College Testing Program scores for nine previous years; and data on placement of vocational students in 1977. The program review discusses state level activities concerning: curriculum, special education, professional development, support services, compensatory education, libraries and other learning resources including innovative projects, child nutrition, equal educational opportunity, transportation, assessment and evaluation, facilities, energy conservation, vocational and adult education, and finance. Five priorities for the coming year are: improving mathematics achievement; improving education for the secondary years; continuing reading achievement improvement; expanding education for exceptional children; and developing a state assessment program.
