Western Virginia Public Education Consortium

HELP 5408316414

The Western Virginia Public Education Consortium ("WVPEC") is composed of twenty-three Virginia school divisions.  At the request of school superintendents, this confederation of school divisions was created by the Virginia legislature in 2001 and currently includes school divisions in the counties of Alleghany, Bath, Bland, Botetourt, Carroll, Craig, Culpeper, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Grayson, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick, Pulaski, Roanoke and Wythe and in the cities of Covington, Lexington, Martinsville, Radford, Roanoke and Salem.

WVPEC’s primary goal is to support educational programming and student success in each of these school divisions and throughout the region, as a whole.

WVPEC's Governing Board is comprised of the twenty-three school superintendents, representatives from both Virginia Tech and Radford University, and regional state legislators.  An Executive Committee of six elected superintendents and university representatives oversees and supports the organization through monthly meetings in Radford, Virginia.  Day-to-day operations of WVPEC are overseen and supported by an Executive Director and an Executive Assistant, both of whom are part-time employees. 

A consortium of dedicated professionals committed to improving educational programming and student success!
