“We are currently planning the widening of Sadler Road between Dominion Boulevard and Cedar Branch Court,” Yob told the Citizen. “The project will include pedestrian facilities, such as sidewalks."

State SOL committee proposes changes

UPDATE: NOV. 26, 5:08 P.M. – A state committee established to review Virginia's public education assessment system has proposed its first 12 recommendations, and they could result in major changes to the way student achievement is evaluated statewide.

The proposals from the SOL Innovation Committee would relax, in several ways, the standards of accountability that are tied directly to Virginia's Standards of Learning tests. They also would allow school districts to measure student achievement in other ways – not just through the SOLs.

The committee recommended that the state allow more leniency for schools that fail to earn accreditation but whose students overall show significant improvement on the SOLs from one year to the next. Such schools might be labeled "provisionally accredited – significant progress demonstrated," for example.
