SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 3
January 10, 1997
|FROM:||Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Status Report on Standards of Learning Implementation|
The Department of Education conducted a survey in the fall of 1996 on the implementation status of the 1995 Standards of Learning. With your cooperation, this survey helped determine the degree to which the new standards have been implemented, and identified issues that should be considered during the coming months to ensure the continued successful implementation of the standards. Enclosed is a copy of the survey results, Status Report on Standards of Learning Implementation. This information will be valuable to the Department, Legislative Commissions, subcommittees, and to school divisions as decisions are made regarding the use of resources. I appreciate your assistance and cooperation in this important effort. Should you have questions about the survey, please contact Thomas L. Shortt at (804) 225-2874. RTL/hc Enclosure: This memo and its enclosure will be sent to the superintendent's office.
