SOL's - Expedited Retake Forms and Remediation Plans

SOL's will take place from May 18-June 3, 2016. Please work with your grade level office to assist in getting Expedited Retake Forms returned. Students who meet the criteria will not be able to retake the test if we do not have this form on file. Please also work with your team and Academic Principal to develop an expedited retake remediation plan that takes place during the school day.

Administrative Team Thank You's And Kudos

  • Thank you to Mr. Hopkins for being a team player with students and staff.
  • Thank you to Mr. Talbot and Mr. Zazo for facilitating SOL Prep between 6th grade Social Studies and Language Arts.
