SOL Testing Schedule

SOL Virginia Standards of Learning ProgramThe SOL Testing Schedule was modified to maximize instructional time and to provide additional flexibility to our students and staff. Only students who are scheduled to take an SOL test or attend an SOL Boot Camp Review on the scheduled dates should report to school. Those students will be notified by their teachers. CVA and VVA students taking SOL classes will also test at OSH on their respective test dates.

Bus transportation to and from school is still provided. Students who are not picked-up at the conclusion of SOL testing or Boot Camp will be supervised and sent to their classes in-person from 1:00-3:45.

Please be advised that all students will be engaged in live synchronous instruction each afternoon and attendance in these afternoon virtual sessions is mandatory. Students will be marked absent if they do not attend. Please monitor information sent by your child’s teachers for specific information or directions.

Please remind your child to bring their charged CPS Chromebook to school on testing days.
