The state's Department of Education unveiled a new website to help out students, teachers and parents.
The website is called "In-Site," and it gives you several options on how to improve student achievement.
It's filled with lessons, ideas and creative assignments, based on the students learning ability.
School officials said "In-Site" is meant to lend a helping hand to better students' education.
"What we have done is gathered all these resources, aligned the courses that are taught in our schools in West Virginia, and at a click can find the one that pertains to what it is that you're teaching and studying," State Superintendent of Schools Kathy D'Antoni said.
Teachers from surrounding states also have jumped on board and offered different ideas for the site.
