Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia [8 VAC 20 ‑ 131]
Action:
Final Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia
 
General Information
Action Summary In this revision, the goals are to address: 1. Further refinement of student-level consequences related to the testing program and the impact of such changes on the school's overall accreditation rating; 2. Refinement of the new accreditation ratings; and 3. Further refinement and clarification of language inconsistencies in the current regulations. Most of the standards adopted by the Board in 1997 have been retained although many sections were rewritten or re-sequenced for clarity to define the Board's continued desire to adopt standards that will improve school performance, provide measurable objectives for student performance, and assist low-performing schools.
