VDOE releases SOL assessments

WINDSOR

The Virginia Department of Education on Wednesday released results of Standards of Learning assessments taken by students during the 2017-2018 school year.

In the Isle of Wight County Public School division, the pass rate for all students in reading was 81 percent; 78 percent for writing; 84 percent for history and social sciences; 78 percent for mathematics; and 85 percent for science.

“We are pleased that all of our schools are fully accredited as expected,” said Lynn Briggs, director of community and media relations for Isle of Wight County Public Schools. “In Isle of Wight County Schools, we are working to ensure all students are college, career and life ready, and the SOL tests are one measure to show we are achieving that goal.”

Charles Pyle, director of communications for VDOE, told Windsor Weekly that, “School divisions are familiar with their data. Looking at the preliminary information that VDOE provides, they can make predictions and some school divisions do so.”

He added that official accreditation report is tentatively expected to be released on Sept. 27.
