As expected, the results of Virginia’s 2020-21 Standards of Learning (SOL) tests reflect the extraordinary circumstances faced by students and schools last year. Overall, 64% of Greene County students passed their English/Reading SOLs (given in grades 3-8), while 40% passed the math exams (grades 3-8 plus geometry and algebra 1 and 2) and 56% passed in science (grades 5 and 8 as well as biology, chemistry and earth science). By comparison, pass rates in 2019 were 70% for English, 77% in math and 76% in science.
