Preview Your Student’s Spring SOL Scores in SIS ParentVUE

To access Test History, log into your ParentVUE account using a web browser (not the app). You will see spring SOL test subjects, performance levels, and overall scores. Families will also receive an official SOL score report letter with more details by the end of July. 

Additional information about SOL assessments is available online. You can also learn more about SIS ParentVUE and how to activate your account.

Students who qualify for free and reduced meals may also be eligible to participate in several fee-based programs at either no cost or at a reduced cost if parents provide a consent to share information form.
