TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Revised Sample K3 Mathematics Achievement Records

 

Regulation 8 VAC 20-131-80.B of the Standards of Accreditation requires that "Schools shall maintain, in a manner prescribed by the Board (of Education), an early skills and knowledge achievement record in reading and math for each student in grades K-3 to monitor student progress and to promote student achievement in the third grade SOL tests. This record shall be included with a student's records if the student transfers to a new school."

 

In the spring of 1999, the Virginia Department of Education developed two sample K-3 Mathematics Standards of Learning Achievement Records. These sample records were created as models for school divisions to use in developing their own achievement records.

 

The two sample K-3 Mathematics Achievement Records have been revised to correlate with the 2001 Mathematics Standards of Learning. Copies of these updated versions are available in Word and pdf format on the Forms Web page listed under Instruction at http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Forms/.

 

Additional information related to the K-3 Mathematics Achievement Records, is referenced in Superintendent's Memorandum, No. 128, June 18, 1999,available at /administrators/superintendents_memos/1999/inf128.html

 

If you need additional information relating to the sample K3 Mathematics Achievement Records, please contact Karen Grass mailto:kgrass@mail.vak12ed.va.us elementary mathematics specialist at (804) 225-3458.
