||Collection of Data Relative to Compliance with
the Standards of Quality for 1996-97
Each year as a part of the Annual Report to the General Assembly on the conditions and needs of public education in Virginia, the Board of Education is required to report the level of compliance by local school divisions with the requirements of the Standards of Quality. This requirement is in response to Section 22.1-18 of the Code of Virginia. The information required to prepare this report is not available to the Department of Education from other sources. Please review the standards and the indicators (a list of standards indicators, Attachment B, is enclosed for your reference), and report only those standards or indicators that you determine your division is not in full compliance. Report that information on Attachment A. For each item listed on Attachment A, provide a brief corrective action plan for complying with the requirement. Our purpose in receiving this information is to report accurate information to the Board of Education and the General Assembly, as well as to assist you in your efforts to be in compliance with all applicable standards. Please return Attachment A along with any required corrective action plans as indicated on or before April 30, 1997. If you have questions regarding the new procedure or this request, please do not hesitate to contact Charles W. Finley, Principal Specialist for Policy Analysis at (804) 225-2747 or via VaPEN to firstname.lastname@example.org.
