WVDE Makes GIS a Statewide Initiative
GIS allows our students to make connections between what they learn in school, and their own communities.

Offerings for Schools
We are committed to helping schools thrive with free online mapping tools, curriculum, and support.
We offer free, standards-based, textbook-aligned activities, instructional materials, and content that teachers can master in minutes.
Free Software for Instruction
The ArcGIS for Schools Bundle is available to schools at no cost, and includes apps for mobile devices, tablets, web browsers, and desktop computers.
Thousands of teachers benefit from Esri training every year to learn and teach GIS. Events and volunteer mentors help teachers succeed.
Esri's education outreach efforts include sharing information and best practices, providing advice, and advocating for educators' needs. Have a question or comment about GIS in education? Schedule a conversation with a member of our team.
