Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) is projecting all of its 82 testing schools will earn full Standards of Learning (SOL) accreditation for the 2017-2018 school year. VBCPS is making this preliminary projection based on SOL passing rates, which the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is scheduled to release the Aug. 15.
“These SOL results affirm what we, in our school division, have been emphasizing these past three years: the simple fact that every student—regardless of economic status, background or school—can achieve academic success,” said VBCPS Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. “Our administrators, teachers and support staff are creating stimulating environments for every student, every day in our schools. We firmly believe learning should be joy-filled and exciting, and that has been a key to these successes.”
