Suffolk Public Schools’ High School Standards of Learning (SOL) Academy will be held at Nansemond River High School July 16-26, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon (excluding Friday).

SOL Academy is offered at no cost to students and is designed to provide students with additional content remediation. In addition, SOL Academy provides some students the opportunity to earn verified credits required for promotion.

Students must register by Thursday, June 28, 2018.

Program Details:

For students who have passed the course, but failed the SOL End-of-Course (EOC) test.

Highly recommended for students with SOL scores ranging from 375 to 399. (Please seek the guidance of the school counselor or school testing coordinator)

Focused teaching will be in the form of direct instruction and/or via online delivery.

An active Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy (AUP) is required for this program. Active AUPs from the school year will be valid for the summer.

Participation in this summer SOL Academy is optional, but strongly recommended.

Students may only take ONE course during this program.

The program is eight (8) days in length with transportation provided. Regular attendance is required.

Students who have not passed the course cannot attend this program. Rather these students should consider repeating the course in summer school or repeat the course next school year.

Standards of Learning (SOL) Assessments will be administered the week of July 23, 2018. Students are required to attend the SOL Academy or be enrolled in summer school in order to retest. Students eligible for expedited tutoring and retesting will be notified through email if they need to return on July 30 and 31.

Information regarding bus routes will be posted on our division’s website by July 5 at www.spsk12.net. Students riding the bus in the morning will be expected to ride the bus home in the afternoon. Failure to comply with the school rules and regulations as provided in the Student Code of Conduct Handbook will result in dismissal from the program. Snacks may be available for purchase during breaks.
