West Virginia is in a significant period of transition from both an economical and educational standpoint. Through statewide advocacy efforts and student-centered programs, The Education Alliance is playing an active role in this transition.   

We believe that West Virginia must redesign and re-envision our students’ learning environment and that strong business and community partnerships are a key component of that effort.   

As we push toward innovation, we are also constantly ensuring that we measure and evaluate our efforts. The Alliance is pleased to support programs and partnerships have moved the needle in some key outcomes. Our 2017 Annual Report highlights the stories of students, teachers, business and community leaders impacted by our work. Most recently these include initiatives to strengthen career readiness through STEM education programs and mobilize business support through robust Partnerships in Education. We continued to build upon the positive momentum of our annual Education Summit and EDTalks series.   If you would like to learn more or partner with us in this exciting work, please feel free to contact me direct. 

I want to thank our Board of Directors and the state’s business and community partners for their leadership and demonstrated commitment to education.  Together, we can remake learning today in order to ensure our students are well-equipped for a bright tomorrow.
