This is great news!

West Virginia’s school technology policies and implementation strategies are among the best in the nation, according to a report titled, “Technology Counts 2008: STEM, The Push to Improve Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.”

The state received an overall score of 95.3 on the report, which ranks West Virginia at the top of the class for its use of technology.

Fantastic!
