Standards of Learning Assessment (SOL)

The Spring Standards of Learning (SOL) standardized assessments are designed to evaluate students' knowledge and skills based on state standards. The school utilizes the assessment data to measure academic growth and make instructional decisions.

In May, students from third through sixth grade at Pine Spring will be assessed. It is important to ensure that your child is punctual and has consistent daily attendance to provide them with ample time and opportunity to complete their assessments. We appreciate your efforts in ensuring that your child is present and arrives at school on time.

If you have any questions regarding SOL assessments, please contact Stephanie Sutton, at
