Ongoing efforts to revise the Standards of Accreditation

At their March Board meeting, the State Board of Education moved forward on their ongoing efforts to revise the Standards of Accreditation, with an intention of creating a school performance and support framework component. The Board has planned Listening Sessions in April across the Commonwealth to help facilitate public engagement to further the development of a school performance framework through Virginia’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) State Plan. 

 
These listening sessions are intended to inform the Board and facilitate public input focused on the new school performance and support framework. The sessions are being coordinated by the Hunt Institute, an independent, non-profit organization. 
 
Parents, educators, and interested citizens are invited to attend the session in their region and comment on their expectations for the new school performance and support framework. All Listening Sessions will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. Meetings will be held on the following date:
