West Virginia State Board of Education, Charleston.; West Virginia State Dept. of Education, Charleston.
Progress made by West Virginia toward achieving each of its six goals for education, which encompass the goals of the West Virginia Board of Education, the Governor's Committee on Education, and the national goals of America 2000 among others, is described in this report. Each section provides a checklist of state achievements and a list of the educational programs being implemented to achieve the state's educational goals. West Virginia's educational goals are: all students will have equal educational opportunities and will be ready for first grade; student performance will equal or exceed national averages with an emphasis on mathematics and science; personnel will be recruited, provided with professional development, and given competitive compensation; 90% of 9th grade students will graduate from high school prepared for either higher education or employment; the school environment will be safe, disciplined, and adequate to the needs of all students; and all working-age adults will be functionally and technically literate. The report also describes two major policy proposals--Policy 2000: Improving Educational Opportunities, and Policy 5000: Educational Personnel Preparation Programs--as well as other state programs and initiatives. A department of education organizational chart is included. (LMI)
