CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Before a crowd of lawmakers, educators, business leaders and others, the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) on Thursday unveiled In|Site, an online resource for teachers, students and administrators.  The website (http://wvde.state.wv.us/insite) offers learning options at a click to both academic and career technical teachers.

"In|Site is our version of the Staples Easy Button, providing an easy link to learning connections," said state Superintendent Jim Phares. "In|Site is where career technical education and academics interface."

Phares and WVDE staff demonstrated the site during the West Virginia Association of Career and Technical Education's Annual Friends of Career and Technical Education Breakfast.

The innovative system helps academic and career technical teachers locate quality instructional resources to use in their classrooms and it allows for the implementation of cross-curricular projects. It also includes an online learning resource for students.

"As we work with Gov. Tomblin, the Legislature, parents, teachers and others to improve student achievement in West Virginia, we must remember the important role career technical education plays," Phares said. "The ultimate goal is for West Virginia's students to achieve academically and to readily learn job skills that prepare them for college and careers. In|Site will help our teachers help our students."
