SPRING 2021 IMPORTANT SOL INFORMATION

  • Spring 21 SOL Schedule

     

    All tests begin at 10AM and students can begin entering through the cafeteria at 9:30 to register with a teacher and find their testing room number. Students need to bring their SCPS chromebooks. When students finish testing they will report to the cafeteria or gym where they can use their phones to contact their rides or wait for the bus. Students can leave when their rides arrive. Breakfast and lunch are provided as well. Students are required to wear masks and maintain social distancing while at school. 

    Transportation During SOLs: 
    Check the eLink website (username: your student ID | password: MMDDYYYY) to find your updated bus route for the SOL next week as new routes are being generated specifically for SOLs. All hybrid students who ride a bus will have one routed to pick them up unless their parent/guardian stated they wouldn't need transportation when they filled out the registration form. Virtual students will only have transportation provided if their parent/guardians requested it when they submitted the registration. A bus can no longer be offered to virtual students if they did not register. 
     
    All students have a seat reserved regardless of whether their parent/guardian completed the registration request in April. 
     
    Makeup Testing Dates (SCPS is unable to provide transportation): 
    Monday, June 7
    Tuesday, June 8 (ASYNC DAY)
    Wednesday, June 9
     
    Students who miss their scheduled SOL will receive an email from Mrs. Neagle inviting them to reserve a seat for makeup testing. Students should report to the library at first block or by 9:45 on the asychronous day.

Testing FAQs

  • What is the purpose of SOL testing?

    Posted by:

    SOL results inform parents and communities about whether students — as individuals and collectively — are meeting the commonwealth’s expectations for achievement in English, mathematics, science and history. SOL tests allow the state Board of Education to identify schools that need assistance and support. The assessments also provide an objective means for measuring achievement gaps between student subgroups and for determining the progress of schools, divisions and the state toward closing these gaps.
