VDOE Q and A

(Update) Will VDOE cancel Standards of Learning (SOL) testing?

At this time SOL tests scheduled for the 2020-2021 school year will be administered as scheduled. With the approval of the Secretary of Education, the Superintendent of Public Instruction has waived accreditation for each public school for the 2021-2022 school year based on data from 2020-2021. This waiver does not affect requirements for standardized testing for the 2020-2021 school year. At this time SOL tests in the 2020-2021 school year will be administered as scheduled.
