SOL Testing Information

2019-2020 SOL Testing

COVID-19 and Virginia Public Schools


On March 23rd, Governor Northam ordered all K-12 schools in Virginia to close for the remainder of the academic year as a response to the continued spread of COVID-19. As such, the administration of the SOL tests, the local scoring and score entry requirements for the Virginia Alternate Assessment Program, and the administration of the ACCESS for ELs assessment for English Learners are suspended. 

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) continues to evaluate the rapidly changing situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic. We understand this is an uncertain and stressful time, and we will provide updated information about SOL testing requirements as it becomes available. FCPS and VDOE continue to evaluate options that provide flexibility in meeting requirements, while prioritizing community health and safety. View updates on the VDOE website here.
