Each year the Board of Education submits to the governor and the General Assembly a report on the condition and needs of public education in the commonwealth. The 2013 Annual Report also includes a special section on the history of the Standards of Learning program.
Virginia Board of Education President David M. Foster concludes his listening tour of state educational regions on Thursday, December 12 with a visit to Region 1 (Richmond and Petersburg areas) from 6-8 p.m. at Colonial Heights High School in Colonial Heights. With this visit, Foster will have fulfilled his pledge to provide an opportunity – in each of the state’s eight regions – for parents, teachers, local school board members, administrators and interested citizens across the state to express their views on issues facing the commonwealth’s public schools.
Virginia's public schools are beginning a new trend line with the implementation of more challenging standards and assessments. The goal is to build on the progress already made under the Standards of Learning program and ensure that all graduates possess the knowledge and skills needed for success in college and the workplace.
— Dr. Patricia I. Wright, Superintendent of Public Instruction
