All of LCPS Schools Fully Accredited for 2018-19


The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has reported that all Loudoun County public schools are fully accredited for the 2018-19 school year.

The revised Standards of Accreditation implemented by VDOE this year measure performance on multiple school-quality indicators, including overall proficiency and growth in English and mathematics; proficiency in science; achievement gaps among student groups; chronic absenteeism; and graduation. Schools also receive credit for the progress made by their English learners toward English-language proficiency. Previously, accreditation was based on the percentage of all students who passed the Standards of Learning tests and graduation. The new standards provide a more comprehensive perspective of school quality.

Statewide, 92 percent of schools are fully accredited by VDOE for 2018-19. The state accreditation ratings for all schools in Virginia can be accessed through the online VDOE School Quality Profiles, http://schoolquality.virginia.gov/.
