Regulations Governing Pupil Accounting Records [8 VAC 20 ‑ 110]
Amendments to Regulations Governing Pupil Accounting Records
Action 522
General Information
Action Summary The Board of Education seeks to amend the Regulations Governing Pupil Accounting Records. The proposed amendments to Virginia's pupil accounting regulations will eliminate the requirement that school divisions either maintain paper records (i.e. Virginia Teacher's Register) of student enrollment and attendance data or implement equivalent centralized (automated) systems. School divisions will be permitted to maintain student information in ways best suited to their local needs and procure automated systems without costly software customization. Additionally, the amendments will clarify the authority of school boards to approve student participation in activities and events away from school and count students as "present" (e.g. service as a General Assembly Page).
