TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Public Schools Retention and Disposition Schedule for Examination and Testing Records

 

 

The growth of the Virginia Assessment Program has made it necessary to update the current public schools retention and disposition schedule for examination and testing records. Over the next six months, the Virginia Department of Education will collaborate with the Library of Virginia to facilitate the revision process for the Examination and Testing Records Series, General Schedule No. 21, as required by the Virginia Public Records Act, 42.1-76 et seq., Code of Virginia.

 

The Division of Assessment and Reporting will work with the division directors of testing and collect recommendations from the eight regions of the state. The goal is to have the revised schedule effective by June 1, 2007. Details will be provided to the directors of testing under a separate cover.

 

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Division of Assessment and Reporting by e-mail at darfax@doe.virginia.gov or by telephone at (804) 225-2102.
