  • Bell Schedule Changes for March 5th and 6th: As we prepare for the EOC Writing SOL administration on March 5, 2019 and March 6, 2019, please know that we will operate on an alternate bell schedule.  While students will not lose any contact time in their classes, this will allow us to minimize disruptions for students who are testing.  Please see the below schedule and contact the school with any questions.

  • New Secondary School Student Assessment and Graduation Requirements in Virginia

    Over the past several years, educators, parents and legislators have raised concerns about the number of Standards of Learning (SOL) tests students are required to take. In November, the Virginia Department of Education provided clarifications to school divisions about recent changes to SOL testing as a result of requirements set-forth in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the Virginia Board of Education’s Standards of Accreditation. These changes will reduce the number of SOL tests our high school students take and explicitly stated that school divisions can no longer tie incentives, such as exam exemptions, to SOL tests.

    PCPS has prepared a recorded presentation for you to review information related to the changes. The presentation can be viewed by clicking on this link: https://youtu.be/szWeycSRrPo

    The presentation is also available on the PHS main webpage under Announcements.

    We will provide information specific to your child during your parent-student scheduling meeting with your student’s school counselor in February.

    A committee of staff members met in January to discuss these changes and the impact on final exams in June 2019.  As a result of rich conversations and discussions regarding various options, the committee‘s recommendation is that PCPS make all final exams optional for students in June of 2019. If a student chooses to take the final exam, then the score will count toward his or her semester and final grade. This recommended change was approved by the School Board at the February meeting. A Frequently Asked Questions sheet has been developed and can be accessed here. A committee will be reviewing the impacts of these changes on final exam s beyond this school year.
