SOL logoThe Campbell County School Board yesterday joined an ever growing list of local schools passing a resolution in favor of revamping Virginia’s system of standardized testing. The most popular part of the resolutions calls for state lawmakers to change Virginia’s public education accountability system so that eliminates the current pattern of over-testing by reducing the 34 Standards of Learning (SOL) tests taken by students in grades 3-11; and would allow for failing students to retake tests when they are ready rather than wait months. The resolution comes from the Virginia Association of School Superintendents, and already has been passed by nearly 60 school boards across Virginia.
