Today (June 28, 2012) the Virginia State Board of Education approved the application of the Bridging Communities Regional Technical Center to be the first regional career and technical center in Virginia in 25 years. Concurrently, the State Board of Education also approved the Bridging Communities' application to become the 15th Governor's STEM Academy in Virginia. Bridging Communities is expected to open with over 100 students from the partnering school divisions including Charles City, King William, King & Queen, Middlesex and New Kent. We are looking forward to welcoming these students in September to the newly renovated facilities located at the historic school.
SOL Test preparation resources, including released SOL tests and practice items are available on the VDOE SOL Test Resource webpage. There are many resources that are very beneficial as students are completing final preparations for Spring, 2012 SOL testing.
