SUBJECT:

Re-Broadcast of Teleconference on SOA Implications for Guidance Counselors

 

On November 28, 2001, the Department of Education conducted a teleconference via satellite on the topic of the Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia (often called the Standards of Accreditation) and how they relate to graduation requirements in Virginia. This 90-minute broadcast will be repeated in two parts on the DOE Hour in January 2002. Part I will air on Thursday, January 10, 2002, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Part II will be broadcast on Tuesday, January 15, 2002, from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Of course, the broadcast may be taped and viewed at another time.

 

The broadcast was originally intended for middle and high school guidance counselors, but it would be beneficial to all school personnel who work with secondary students as they develop their high school courses of study. Viewers would profit from having a copy of the PowerPoint presentation that will be used during the broadcast since the teleconference addresses a wealth of information and moves quickly. The PowerPoint presentation may be accessed as Attachment A to this memorandum.

 

For further information, contact Dr. Linda Wallinger (mailto:lwalling@pen.k12.va.us), director of secondary instruction, at 804-225-2880.
