ALL CHARLES CITY COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE FULLY ACCREDITED.
RICHMOND, Va. — The Virginia Department of Education announced today that 86 percent, or 1,573, of the commonwealth’s 1,823 public schools are rated as Fully Accredited for this school year, based on the performance of students on Standards of Learning and other state-approved assessments in English, mathematics, science and history during 2016-2017. This represents a five-point improvement over last year, when 81 percent of schools earned the state’s top accountability rating.
For a school to earn full accreditation, students must achieve adjusted pass rates of at least 75 percent in English and at least 70 percent on assessments in mathematics, science and history. High schools must also meet a benchmark for graduation and completion. Accreditation ratings may also reflect an average of achievement over several years. Click here to read the press release.
The 2016-17 school year was an exciting one for Charles City Public Schools. Pending the official release of state Standards of Learning (SOL) data by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), it is anticipated that for the first time in five years, all schools in Charles City County will be fully accredited. This anticipated news comes on the heels of confirmation last school year that Charles City Elementary School missed full accreditation by a single percentage point on their Mathematics SOLs.
“This past academic year, we took a major change in our approach to student achievement data and how it informs instruction at CCES,” shared Division Superintendent David Gaston. “Through the use of formative and summative assessments and diagnostic data from a variety of sources, teachers were able to focus on each individual student’s learning needs and successfully provide remediation and support to them for academic growth and success.” Teachers engaged in weekly student data talks as they collaborated with one another in team meetings. Their conversations focused solely on individual student learning needs in math and reading in an effort to provide instruction in seminar sessions during the school day that would help students grasp the concepts that they had difficulty understanding.
