Halifax:
I would like to make you aware of a new tool provided by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) that provides useful information regarding the status of public schools and local school divisions throughout the Commonwealth. You can find the detailed "School Quality Profiles" that VDOE provides at SchoolQuality.Virginia.gov.

These profiles cover many topics, including:

  • student achievement
  • college and career readiness
  • program completion
  • school safety
  • teacher quality
  • and many more

If you are a parent or grandparent, I encourage you to visit SchoolQuality.Virginia.Gov if you have children who are attending public schools, and are simply looking for more information on public schools and school divisions.

VDOE was directed to develop this tool as a result of legislation (House Bill 1672) I supported during the 2015 General Assembly Session.

General Assembly:
I am preparing to return to Richmond for the 2017 session of the Virginia General Assembly on January 11th. If you have a problem or an issue that you feel should be addressed through legislation, please contact me as soon as possible.

Quote of the Day:
"Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards - the things we live by and teach our children - are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings." Walt Disney
