Public Comment Opportunity

VDOE continues to implement the History and Social Science Standards of Learning, Overview of the Review and Revision Process.

Virginia PTA has been actively engaged with the Virginia Department of Education from the earliest stages of this process and encourages members to contribute to public comment on the proposed standards.

Public comment on the standards will be accepted until September 25, 2022.

The proposed standards can be found here: https://doe.virginia.gov/boe/meetings/2022/08-aug/item-g-attachment-a.pdf

Individuals can visit the History and Social Sciences SOL page (https://doe.virginia.gov/testing/sol/standards_docs/history_socialscience/index.shtml) to leave public comment. Each set of standards is listed by grade level or secondary level course topic.

Community Engagement sessions are expected to begin in October. The proposed standards will be presented to the Virginia Board of Education in November for first review. Afterwards, public hearings will be held in December.
