I would like to make you aware of a new tool provided by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) that provides useful information regarding the status of public schools and local school divisions throughout the Commonwealth. You can find the detailed “School Quality Profiles” that VDOE provides here.
These profiles cover many topics, including:
- student achievement
- college and career readiness
- program completion
- school safety
- teacher quality
- and many more
As a parent, I encourage you to visit SchoolQuality.Virginia.Gov if you have children who are attending public schools, or are looking for more information on public schools and school divisions.
VDOE was directed to develop this tool as a result of legislation (House Bill 1672) introduced and passed in the 2015 General Assembly Session.
