* It is very important that all students are present daily and test as these scores will affect the School Performance Score of the Virtual Academy of Lafourche.
* You and your children’s cooperation during testing the past two years has been outstanding and I know it will be outstanding again as evidenced by the 5.4 point rise in VAL’s School Performance Score (2012-2013 SPS 70; 2013-2014 SPS 75.4)
* Each site has developed its own time schedule and will provide you with your child’s individual testing schedule.

Again, thanks so very much to all of you for the continued support of VAL.  Should you need additional information please contact your child’s EC or Site Manager.
