Policy JOA

Secondary school transcripts contain information as specified by the Virginia Board of Education.

Test Record
The Superintendent is responsible for establishing a procedure by which parents, guardians or others with legal control of a student can elect in writing to have the student’s test record excluded from the student transcript. The test record includes at least the highest score earned, if applicable, on college performance-related standardized tests such as SAT and ACT, excluding Standards of Learning (SOL) test scores.

High School Credit-Bearing Courses Taken in Middle School
For any high school credit-bearing course taken in middle school, parents may request that grades be omitted from the student's transcript and the student not earn high school credit for the course. The Superintendent specifies, by regulation, the deadline and procedure for making such a request. Notice of this provision is provided to parents.
