Virginia Department of Education Releases School Accreditation Ratings All Fluvanna County Public Schools are Fully Accredited
PRESS RELEASE – October 2, 2019
The Virginia Department of Education announced that 92 percent of Virginia’s public schools are rated as Fully Accredited for 2019-20.
Fluvanna is one of only 19 school divisions to have all schools fully accredited for the past six years. There are a total of 132 school divisions in the State of Virginia. Schools can meet the accreditation by scoring above the benchmark or by using a three-year average.
Because they do not administer SOL tests, accreditation for Central Elementary and West Central Primary Accreditation is based on the performance at Carysbrook Elementary School.
“I am proud of our school division for achieving this benchmark for the sixth consecutive year. We are fortunate to have a community that supports education and a group of dedicated educators who work together to provide our students with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful,” stated Mr. Chuck Winkler, Superintendent.
