K-12 overview of what students are learning and when they are learning it.
These pages are intended to provide families with an overview of what students are learning and when they are learning it.
Instruction in Virginia's public schools is guided by the Standards of Learning (SOL). The standards describe the expectations for student learning and achievement in grades K-12.
Pacing is the how and when teachers teach the standards. Each school division creates its own pacing. These pacing overviews are examples of how and when teachers organize and teach the curriculum. They are organized by quarter and by week.
Teacher teams may adjust the pacing or order of units to best meet the needs of students.
Elementary (grades K to 6)
Secondary (grades 7 to 12)

- Check for understanding
