Title Guidance for the Determination of the New Accreditation Rating: “Partially Accredited”
Document ID SOA
Summary The 2015 Acts of Assembly directed the Board of Education to “promulgate regulations establishing additional accreditation ratings that recognize the progress of schools that do not meet accreditation benchmarks but have significantly improved their pass rates, are within specified ranges of benchmarks, or have demonstrated significant growth for the majority of their students. The Board shall implement such regulations no later than the 2016-2017 school year.” The Board approved revisions to the Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia that incorporated these new ratings in July 2015 under the Fast Track Provisions of the Administrative Process Act. The changes to the regulations were effective on October 8, 2015.
