VA Dept. of Ed Proposes New Accountability System

August 8, 2017

The Virginia Dept. of Education is proposing a new accountability system. Under the new plan, “schools will be identified as requiring either ‘comprehensive support and improvement’ — when school-wide test scores fall short of benchmarks — or ‘targeted support and improvement’ — when a subgroup falls short.” Spokesman Charles Pyle commented that “the state’s accountability program offers parents user-friendly data to evaluate schools, including an online dashboard.”
