Parents/Guardians and Students:
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) requires that state and federal assessments be delivered under secure, standardized testing conditions in the presence of school personnel and may not be administered remotely to students. Students in any instructional model (100% distance or hybrid) must attend school in person to participate in Standards of Learning (SOL), PSAT, WIDA Access, SAT and AP testing.
To support students’ health and safety, Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) will ensure that health mitigation procedures are in place and social distancing is observed.
Students enrolled in a high school level course must accrue standard credits by passing a course and verified credits by passing an SOL test or board-approved substitute tests toward graduation.
While we encourage all students to participate in assessments, we understand that some families may have concerns about the in-person testing requirement. Parents who do not wish for their student to participate in state and/or federally mandated assessments may indicate their refusal by emailing their student’s School Testing Coordinator.
A printable parent refusal form can also be found on the LCPS website.
A digital Parent Refusal form link for SOLs and VAAP testing is here
Questions regarding assessment administration or requirements may be addressed to Leigh.Bennett@lcps.org, Supervisor, Assessment Services.
If a student has met their graduation requirements, a parent refusal form is not necessary unless the SOL is required for Federal Accountability.
