Both Martinsville and Patrick County school districts are making adjustments to accommodate changing state mandates. From the way free meals are reaching students to how lessons can be received and learned, the process changes almost daily. One big relief for educators and students is the cancellation of the Standards of Learning tests, a federally mandated annual reading and mathematics assessment of all students in grades 3-12. All public schools in Virginia have been given permission by the U.S. Department of Education to cancel SOL testing during this school year.
