All online students are reminded that they have to take their SOL test at Rocky Run. Our testing schedule on Mondays will run from 7:30 AM -11:00 AM. For our online students that want to take the test and live more than one and a half miles from Rocky Run, parents and guardians need to fill out the transportation request form for an FCPS bus to take your child to and from Rocky Run. This form needs to be filled out by 3:00 PM on Monday, April 19, 2021.  This will allow for time for the transportation department to process our information. Parents and guardians will be notified by April 30, 2021 for all transportation requests. If your child lives within one and half miles from Rocky Run, you will need to provide your own transportation.

For our online students who are not taking Algebra 1, Algebra 2 or Geometry classes, FCPS has released information on the Virginia Remote Student Progress Test, (VRSPT) the alternative to the SOL test for this year. The alternative was discussed at the Town Hall meetings on March 23, 2021 and it was stated that the information would be released as soon as it was received. This option is available for online students only who choose to refuse all SOL testing.  This option is not available to students who are taking classes in person at Rocky Run. The VRSPT can be completed from home from May 10 – June 4, 2021 and covers:

  • Reading 7
  • Reading 8
  • Science 8
  • Math 7
  • Math 8

Given the challenges of the pandemic, if you decide to refuse testing for your child, or need to change your decision, please fill out the linked form and return by 3:00 PM on Monday, April 19, 2021. After that date, the request window will be closed.

All online students, whether they take the SOL or the VRSPT, need to make sure that computers have been restarted and are updated prior to testing. Students will have the opportunity to come into the building and connect to the FCPS Wi-Fi and restart their computers and update.
