West Virginia education officials they've made progress on the governor's education priorities but more needs to be done.
The Charleston Gazette reports that the state Board of Education outlined progress on these priorities in a status report drafted during a special meeting on Wednesday. The full report has not yet been approved.
State Schools Superintendent Jim Phares says the board's work on preparing students for a career after high school is the biggest accomplishment so far.
He says overhauling professional development for teachers needs the most work.
