Purpose of the meeting
With the State Board of Education having begun the official regulatory process this past August to revise Virginia’s Standards of Accreditation with an intention of creating an accountability measurement separate from accreditation, the Board is planning listening sessions across the Commonwealth to help facilitate public engagement in the accountability measurement development process. These listening sessions are intended to inform the Board and facilitate public input focused on potential accountability measures. The sessions are being coordinated by the Hunt Institute, an independent, non-profit organization. Parents, educators and interested citizens are invited to attend the session in their region and comment on their expectations for accountability measurements. Additional information about the revision process can be found on the VDOE website:
