Good news to share!

This afternoon the House Appropriations unanimously reported HB1490 (Habeeb). The bill directs the Board of Education to promulgate regulations to provide the same criteria for eligibility for an expedited retake of any Standards of Learning test, with the exception of the writing Standards of Learning tests, to each student regardless of grade level or course. Governor McAuliffe has included $200,000 in his budget amendments for the costs of these expedited retakes beginning in the 2015-2016 school year.
