The Standards of Learning (SOL) are academic standards used in Virginia and other states in the United States to define what students should know and be able to do in each subject area at each grade level. These standards set expectations for student learning and are used to guide curriculum and instruction in Virginia’s public schools.
To pass the SOL exams, students must demonstrate a proficient level of knowledge and understanding of the subject matter, as outlined in the SOLs. The specific requirements for passing the exams may vary depending on the subject and grade level.
At the request of 4th and 5th-grade teachers from Accawmacke and Chincoteague Elementary Schools, the District’s Education Director has developed a number of new programs aimed at 4th and 5th-grade SOL’s.
Graphing the Ocean Floor – Students learn about the ocean floor and its features while also practicing their graphing skills.
