Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia [8 VAC 20 ‑ 131]
Action:
Amendments to permit students entering the ninth grade prior to the 2018-19 school year to be awarded locally-awarded verified credit in English and mathematics when certain Board of Education-established criteria are met.
 
General Information
Action Summary The proposed amendments allow students that entered the ninth grade prior to the 2018-19 school year to be awarded locally-awarded verified credits in English and mathematics when certain Board of Education-established criteria are met. Currently, these students may receive locally-awarded verified credits in only science and history/social science. These proposed amendments would amend the Standards of Accreditation as they are currently effective for the current school year, and as they will be effective for the 2018-19 school year. Changes to the Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia that will be effective beginning with the 2018-19 school year will allow students that enter the ninth grade in 2018-2019 and thereafter to receive locally-awarded verified credits in English, mathematics, science, and history/social science. The proposed amendments will provide access to locally-awarded verified credits in English, mathematics, science, and history/social science for both existing and future students.
