416R-B - Student Transcripts

Generally

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

Grades and credits earned in middle school for high school credit-bearing courses will count toward graduation credits and will be calculated in the high school GPA unless a “Request to Omit Grade and Credit for High School Courses” is filed as provided for in the Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia (8 VAC 20-131-90).

Requests to omit grades and credit for a high school credit-bearing course taken in middle school must be submitted to the high school principal prior to the first student day of the student’s ninth grade year. When parents do not opt to omit a grade and credit and the student proceeds to the next course in sequence, parents may appeal to the high school principal during the first month of school that the student be returned to the prerequisite class if it becomes apparent further preparation is needed for success in the more advanced course.
