SOL Testing Procedures Letter

SOL Testing Procedures Letter
Posted on 05/10/2018

Dear Elephant’s Fork Parents and Guardians:

It is that time of year again when we administer state and federally mandated Standards of Learning (SOL) tests. Please refer to the testing schedule below. These tests will determine whether Elephant’s Fork achieves state accreditation. Although these tests are taken by students in grades 3-5, our students in Early Start-2nd are impacted by the daily schedule.

Listed below are some of the changes that take place during state testing.

● Recess will not take place during testing due to all the testing sites inside and outside of the building. A modified recess schedule will be sent to teachers to take students outside once testing is completed.

● Once testing begins (approx. 10am) visitors will not be allowed to access any parts of the building other than the office (this includes the cafeteria.)

● Please spend time with your child reviewing & preparing them for these schedule changes

● The resource schedule is altered (due to resource staff being utilized as examiners/proctors for upcoming SOL tests.

A modified resource schedule will be sent to teachers to take students to resource once testing is completed
Thank you in advance for your support.
