SOL Testing Information for Sophomores and Juniors

Dear Parents of the Classes of 2020 and 2021,

In light of the News You Choose that was sent by FCPS on Friday, March 8, we anticipate new guidelines will streamline SOL assessments in our school.

This section of the bulletin is ONLY for parents of current Juniors and Sophomores. 

Our Department of Student Services is here to help simplify the process and ensure your voices are heard regarding which SOLs your student will take to complete their high school testing requirements.  We will be sending out tailored notifications through Naviance today that will explain the choices your student has with regards to SOLs.  The email will contain a Google form for your family to communicate to us your choices for your student’s SOLs.  Students will be asked to use their FCPS account to complete this form, allowing us to communicate those choices more quickly to our testing system.  These choices will affect which SOLs your student will take in May 2019.

If you have questions or concerns about testing plans, please contact your student’s school counselor. For any questions about SOL testing changes from the Virginia Department of Education, you may contact the Assessment Coach, Leslie Barnhart, at 703-750-8352 or     

Principal Evaluation Survey

This spring all TJHSST parents will be contacted through email or text message with a link to the FCPS Principal Evaluation Parent/Guardian Feedback Form Online. This survey is part of the FCPS Performance Evaluation Program and offers parents an opportunity to provide anonymous input about various topics related to our school.  These topics include instructional leadership, school climate, human resources management, organizational management, communication and community relations, and professionalism.

The survey will be collected online between March 13 and March 27.  When you receive an email or text message from FCPS Surveys, please take a few minutes to complete the survey.  Thank you.

Save Arrival On Campus

As the school year progresses, commuters tend to arrive later to our campus. This can create opportunities for novice and veteran drivers to make mistakes that could result in injury to other drivers or pedestrians. Please plan to arrive on campus no later than 8:25 a.m. to allow adequate time to navigate the Kiss and Ride lanes or park and enter the building. Also, please do not stop on Braddock Road and drop off students. We have had some dangerous scenarios of students running across the road trying to make it to school on time. Thank you for all you do to plan your commute for safe arrival on our campus.
