Standards of Quality (SOQ) & Other Requirements Compliance Reporting
Each year, provisions in the Code of Virginia, the Virginia Administrative Code and the Appropriation Act require school divisions to report on the status of compliance on a variety of requirements.
As a part of the annual report to the General Assembly on the condition 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 (SOQ). This requirement is in response to § 22.1-18 of the Code of Virginia.
In addition to SOQ-related data, VDOE also collects data for several other certifications and reporting requirements.
School divisions use the Single Sign-On for Web-based Systems (SSWS) to collect the data.

In addition to compliance reporting, school divisions are asked to certify compliance with non-SOQ requirements, although that information is not included in the board’s annual report.
