The Virginia Department of Education announced yesterday that every Chesterfield County school is accredited for the 2022-23 school year.
This is the first time since COVID-19 that Virginia has used Standards of Learning pass rates to assess school accreditation. In 2018-19, which was the last school year accreditation was assessed in Virginia, 100% of Chesterfield County schools also were accredited.
“I am intensely grateful to Team Chesterfield for this achievement, which reflects the do-whatever-it-takes attitude of our teachers and staff as well as the hard work of our students,” said Dr. Merv Daugherty, superintendent of Chesterfield County Public Schools. “Last year was our first full year of in-person instruction since COVID-19, and SOL scores improved. I am proud of what our teachers and students are accomplishing, and we will continue to do what’s best for all kids. There is still work to do as we continue to focus on curriculum and instruction. Our strategic plan will guide our work over the next several years.”
