MARCH WRITING SOL - This message is for parents or guardians of students who are taking English 11, English 11 Honors or AP English Language.  The Virginia Department of Education requires that all students in high school take the English Writing Standards of Learning (SOL) test. The purpose of the testing is to provide information about student achievement in several areas of English Writing. Students must pass the English Writing SOL test as a graduation requirement for a Standard or Advanced Diploma.

The test has two components: multiple choice and direct writing. In order to obtain a score your child must complete both components. The English Writing test will be administered at Herndon High School next week, March 7th through March 10th. 

It will be very helpful if you can avoid appointments which may take your child out of school during this time period. Also, it will help your child perform his or her best if he or she has had a good night’s rest, a healthy breakfast, and comes to school with a positive attitude.

If you have any questions about the testing schedule or graduation requirements please contact Lindsay Rosen, Assessment Coach ( or your student’s counselor.
