Virginia Growth Assessment (VGA) Information

Virginia legislation requires growth assessments for Grade 3-8 students beginning in fall 2021.

For fall 2021, VGA will address content that was taught in the previous school year. The purpose of this fall’s VGA is to identify potential learning gaps resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no “passing” or “failing” outcome for the VGA. Results will provide a starting point to measure growth and will offer information about areas of strength and areas for growth in reading and mathematics.

Students at Stone MS will be assessed on the following dates:

  • October 5 (Math)
  • October 7 (Reading)

As a result, our schedule will be a little different on each of those days, students should report to their 4th period (Panther Block) class to begin the day.
