Virginia Public Schools are constantly challenged by our Governors, General Assembly and the appointed State School Board. We have had to adjust to new SOL tests in four subject areas over the past three years. These tests are demanding more from our students and teachers. Although it is not official, it appears we will have met this challenge for accreditation for the 12th straight year.
Mathews County Public Schools is committed to not just meeting the challenges of SOL testing. We are committed to the overall success of our students. We cannot do it alone. Communication with your child's teacher is important. Question your child and the teachers if you are not sure of something. Together we will make school a positive experience.
The economy is slowly picking up. However, if you are unable to pay for any school fees, simply let your school principal know and it may be waived. In effort to save expenses and trees, our Student Conduct Guidelines and Other Important Information is available online at www.mathews.k12.va.us. If you would like a printed copy please contact your child's school.
It is a joy and a privilege to work with your children each and every day.
David J. Holleran, Ed.D.
