VASCD thanks Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton for contributing this month's feature article.
We Can Not Afford to Wait
by Anne Holton



It can be difficult to accomplish something this big in a little over two months.

But somehow, since the first meeting on July 15, the SOL Innovation Committee (a diverse group made up of teachers, parents, educators, business professionals, administrators, advocates and elected officials from all across the Commonwealth) has formed, staffed and launched subcommittees, held multiple meetings, discussed policy, debated best practices, and produced a draft list of fourteen desired results and a list of eighteen different themes.

Interested in Policy?


VASCD is forming a Team of Advocates to assist in educating and influencing Virginia legislators in the interest of our students, teachers, and educational leaders. Our hope is to identify one VASCD member in the legislative district of each member of the Virginia House and Senate Education Committees. We'll offer these Advocates information, training, policy updates, and resources, and we will ask that they communicate regularly with one legislator on our behalf. Not sure if you live in the district of an Education Committee member? Check the committee listings here.


 If you'd like more information about our Team of Advocates, contact Phyllis Milne, Advocacy Chair, at or Laurie McCullough, Exec. Director at
