On January 26, 2017, the Board of Education approved the 2017 English Standards of Learning. The approved SOL are the first to be revised using the guidelines of the Profile of a Virginia Graduate. The Profile, developed by the Board of Education, describes knowledge, skills, and experiences students should attain during their K-12 education to make them "life-ready." The goals of the English SOL, teaching students to read, write, research and communicate, align with the Profile of a Virginia Graduate and include the foundational skills of critical thinking, creative thinking, collaboration, communication, and citizenship.
