SUBJECT:

Collection of Data Relative to Compliance with the Standards of Quality for 2003-2004

 

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 boards 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 on Attachment A your division's level of compliance with the standards. For each item listed on Attachment A with which your division is not in full compliance, please provide a brief corrective action plan for complying with the requirement and the projected date by which you will submit evidence of compliance to the department. Our purpose in collecting this information is to report accurate information to the Board of Education and the General Assembly, and to assist you in your efforts to comply with all applicable standards. Please return Attachment A with any required corrective action plans as indicated on or before April 30, 2004.

 

If you have questions regarding this request, please do not hesitate to contact Charles W. Finley, assistant superintendent for accountability, at 804-786-9421 or by e-mail to cfinley@pen.k12.va.us.
