Meet Our New Team

 
 

Letter from Commissioner Nominee

Racquel Berry-Benjamin
______________________________________________________________

 

Dear VIDE Family,

It is an honor to continue the educational journey I once started with you. Today, I come before you humbled, competent, and ready to serve as your Commissioner.

Educating the populace of any society is no simple task. Among other things, it requires a variety of competencies, skill sets, experiences, knowledge-bases, creative, and innovative minds, but most importantly, people who care. I am confident that we have a full complement of faculty and staff who possess the necessary essentials to educate our people and I believe in each of you 100%. You have remained committed to serving our students and adult learners, and as such, kept the engines of the V.I. Department of Education running. Do know that you are the most valuable asset to the Department of Education. It is your hard work and dedication that ensures the VIDE meets the needs of our number one priority, our students.

Our ship has left the dock and has set sail to continue its educational voyage; this time, with me as your captain. While what we do remains, it’s critical that the manner in which we do it changes to achieve our goal of student success. The key to our success is being the best we can in our respective roles and working together as a TEAM. I look forward to working hand-in-hand with each of you.

Thank you for the overwhelming welcome and support. We’ve now embarked on another journey to continue educating our most precious jewels, the children of the Virgin Islands.

To our success,

Racquel Berry-Benjamin 
      
Commissioner

School Report Card

The Virgin Islands School Report Card offers you important information about the progress of the Virgin Islands public education system at the territory, district, and school levels.

The Virgin Islands Department of Education is transforming its accountability system. On December 10, 2015, President Barack Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorized and updated the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The new law provides states more authority on how to best educate students, test students’ achievement levels, provide students with the supports and interventions they need, and how to best track a state’s progress to accomplishing these goals.

The 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2019-20 school years are considered a transition period as the new ESSA law is implemented.  During the transition period, the VIDE will continue to report on the academic performance of students across the territory. Full implementation of the Virgin Islands’ accountability state plan under ESSA will take place in the 2019-2020 school year.

Special Note:  The VIDE did not administer the territory-wide assessments of learning during  school year 2017-18 due to damages to the technological infrastructure and loss of instructional time as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Data from the 2018-19 assessments will be made available in November 2019.

Thank you for visiting.
