Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia [8 VAC 20 ‑ 131]
Action:
Comprehensive review
 
General Information
Action Summary Section 22.1-253.13:3 of the Code of Virginia requires the Board of Education to establish standards for accreditation. The regulations were last amended in 2000. Since that time, public schools in Virginia have implemented more rigorous requirements for accountability both at the school level and the student level. Now that most Virginia schools are fully accredited, and the first high school class required to earn verified units of credit has graduated from high school, it is time for a comprehensive review of the regulations to determine if there are changes that might be needed.
