SOL Retake and Appeals Permission Form
The Virginia Board of Education allows certain elementary and middle school students who fail Standards of Learning (SOL) test on their first attempt to retake the test before the end of the school year. Retesting is available when a student failed his or her first attempt by a narrow margin (scored of 375-399, with a score of 400 needed to pass). Schools can also appeal scores below 375 when there is evidence of a discrepancy between a student’s SOL score and his or her performance in the course.
