Albemarle County Public Schools

In the spring of 2012, Albemarle County Public Schools began piloting the College and Workforce Readiness Assessment, which it feels better measures a student's ability to think critically and creatively. In the 2013 General Assembly session, Delegate David Toscano introduced a resolution requesting a study of SOL alternatives, but that resolution failed to make it out of committee[1].

SOL Reform

In 2014, Delegates Rob Krupicka (D-Alexandria) and Thomas A. “Tag” Greason (R-Loudoun) introduced House Bill 498, which proposes dropping the total number of SOL tests across the Commonwealth from 34 to 26, and permitting local school divisions to use end-of-year tests other than the SOL for some subject areas[2].
