SOL Retake Permission Slip
The Virginia Board of Education is allowing middle school students who fail SOL tests by a narrow margin (scoring between a 375 and 399) to be retested before the end of the year provided parental permission is obtained. If you believe that your student would benefit from a second opportunity to demonstrate proficiency before the end of the school year, should they be eligible for a second attempt, please complete the permission slip and return it to your child’s 3rd period teacher by Friday, May 15th.
