SUBJECT:

Regulations Governing the Secondary School Transcript

 

On March 29, 2007, the Virginia Board of Education adopted amended regulations governing the Secondary School Transcript. These revisions were made in order to strengthen the transcript regulations and to bring them into conformity with amended or new state and federal laws as well as the needs of higher education. The secondary school transcript regulations shall become effective for students who take secondary courses for credit beginning in the 2008-2009 school year.

 

Attachment A contains a copy of the recently adopted regulations for your use in planning and developing transcripts at the local level. Localities have options for the secondary school transcript format. They may use the Department of Educations sample or develop their own following the revised regulations. Attachment B contains the Department of Educations sample transcript.

 

For further information, please contact Joseph A. Wharff, school counseling specialist, by e-mail at Joseph.Wharff@doe.virginia.gov, or by telephone at (804) 786-9377.
