Appomattox County Public Schools fully accredited for third year
APPOMATTOX Co., Va. (WSET) -- Appomattox County Public Schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education for the third year in a row.
Dorinda Grasty, superintendent of Appomattox County Public Schools says the accreditation is based on performance of students on Standards of Learning assessments in English, math, science and history during 2016-17.
According to Superintendent Grasty, students must achieve adjusted pass rates of 75 percent in English and at least 70 percent in the remaining subjects in order for a school to earn full accreditation. High schools must also reach benchmark for graduation and completion.
She calls the achievement "a shining reflection of the daily dedication of all teachers and staff of Appomattox County Public Schools to our students."
