INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Accreditation Standards Workshop

 
  Attached is information on a workshop being presented by the
  University of Virginia's Division of Continuing Education. 
  This valuable workshop is an excellent opportunity for
  learning practical solutions to implementing the new
  Standards of Accreditation.

  Implementing the new standards will provide new challenges
  for Virginia's school divisions, and this workshop is
  designed to help you meet those challenges.  With separate
  sessions for middle school and high school administrators,
  the workshop provides extremely useful information on
  scheduling, staffing, course offerings and instruction
  issues related to the new standards.

  I hope you will take advantage of this timely workshop and
  the valuable information it will provide.
