Published: January 1, 2013

This guidance document pertains to the education information system at the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE), under the authority of the West Virginia Board of Education (WVBE), which contains data on West Virginia schools and districts, including individual student and staff records. This education information system and its data, first implemented in the 1990s, are used for the purpose of supporting data-driven, intelligent decision making and to facilitate state and federal reporting, including data required for the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The information system helps school districts maintain more accurate information and manage student data more efficiently.
