The Standards of Learning Program
In 1995, the Board of Education of the
Commonwealth of Virginia took an important step
to raise the expectations for all students in
public schools by adopting new Standards of
Learning in the areas of English, mathematics,
history and social science, science, and
computer/technology.
  • The Virginia Standards of Learning set reasonable
    targets and expectations for what teachers are
    expected to teach and what students are expected
    to learn. These academic standards are used to
    inform parents and teachers of what students are
    learning and to make schools accountable for
    teaching the content found in the Standards of
    Learning.
  • Two Components of the Standards of Learning
    Program
  • Standards of Learning
  • Standards of Learning Assessment

Virginia Standards of Learning Program
22.1-253.131. Standard 1. Instructional
programs supporting the Standards of Learning and
other educational objectives. The Board of
Education shall establish educational objectives
known as the Standards of Learning, which shall
form the core of Virginia's educational program,
and other educational objectives, which together
are designed to ensure the development of the
skills that are necessary for success in school
and for preparation for life in the years beyond.

  • The Department of Educations goal is for full
    implementation of the newly revised History and
    Social Science Standards of Learning at all
    levels beginning in fall 2010.
  • Recognizing that curriculum alignment efforts
    require planning, time, staff development, and
    resources, school divisions should begin to
  • review and align history and social science
    curricula with the revised standards
  • review current resource materials and correlate
    them with the revised standards
  • develop new materials where needed and
  • provide staff development for teachers.
  • The History and Social Science Standards of
    Learning assessments will continue to be based on
    the 2001 History and Social Science Standards of
    Learning through the summer 2010 test
    administration.
  • Field-test items on the spring 2010 History and
    Social Science Standards of Learning assessments
    will include the new content of the revised 2008
    standards.
  • In the 2010-2011 school year, the Standards of
    Learning assessments will be based upon the
    revised 2008 Standards.

26
2008 History and Social Science Standards of
Learning Implementation
  • Local school divisions will decide on the
    implementation of the 2008 History and Social
    Science Standards of Learning.
  • Selected Virginia teachers are currently working
    with Department of Education staff to write
    lessons for the new K-12 History and Social
    Science content to be included in the Enhanced
    Scope and Sequence.
  • It is anticipated that the K-3 Enhanced Scope and
    Sequence will be posted online in late spring
    2009.
  • Additional Enhanced Scope and Sequence lessons
    for new content will be posted upon completion.
  • The Board of Education will decide the textbook
    adoption process by early 2009. The textbook and
    instructional materials adoption schedule has
    been approved by the Board of Education.

The Curriculum Framework amplifies the Standards
of Learning and defines the content
knowledge, skills, and understandings that are
measured by the
Standards of Learning tests.
33
Teachers can use the Essential Questions to
develop and frame the unit of study. Essential
Knowledge provides the identified minimum content
that all teachers should teach and all students
should learn for the course assessment.
34
The Essential Skills describe the intellectual
skills students need to use through their course
of study. The Essential Understandings identify
the big picture the students need to know for the
unit of study.
