Third Grade SOL

In a division administrative meeting today our team held a brief discussion on the implications and opinions associated with Senate BILL 185 to require that only math and English Standards of Learning be required in the third grade. Discussion points included talking points on recognizing the need to address concerns with mathematics and reading needs; as well as what potential implications it may have on addition testing at the elementary level. As a middle school administrator; I’m not directly affected now but can’t help to wonder what role this passage will have on future testing.
