Hosted by Marshall University’s June Harless Center, the Early Learning Technical Assistance Center offers high-quality professional learning and support related to the P-5 West Virginia College- and Career- Readiness Standards.

The West Virginia Department of Education’s Early Learning Technical Assistance Center (ELTAC) exists to ensure a unified commitment to excellence and equity in P-5 education.


It is our vision that all communities in West Virginia feel prepared to meet the needs of the children within their school system.


The ELTAC strives to be a platform upon which educators across the state of West Virginia can stand in order to elevate their educational practices and improve learning experiences for all children as they progress through P-5 education.


When school communities can deliver high-quality, standards-aligned instruction and support, children will be better prepared to succeed in school and eventually graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship.


The ELTAC is established to provide high-quality professional learning, research, and other resources to communities that serve children through grade five across the state of West Virginia.
