from Secretary Gayle C. Manchin

Welcome to the Department of Education and the Arts! 

As you visit our site, you will see this is a department filled with diversity.  It is our mission to advance the arts and assist education in West Virginia communities with programs that encourage lifelong learning and build pride in our state.

 Through West Virginia Public Broadcasting and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, we share the stories of the Mountain State and entice people to explore our culture and heritage.  The West Virginia Library Commission, Rehabilitation Services and the Center for Professional Development focus on education.  Volunteer West Virginia engages West Virginians to be involved with our state and make a difference.

 As Secretary, I am excited to promote the fine programs of our agencies. Within the Department of Education and the Arts, the people are proud of our heritage, excited about our future and ready to make certain that everyone who reaches out to us gets the help they need and the services that will help them.
