State education officials say more than 30% of Virginia’s public school did not meet full accreditation standards last year.
Here’s how the numbers break down from the Department of Education:
68% of the state’s 1827 schools were fully accredited based on Standards of Learning test results. That’s down from 77% the previous year, and 93% two years ago.
The number of schools “accredited with warning” increased from 393 to 545.
