The Board of Education is responsible for dividing the Commonwealth of Virginia into school divisions and reviewing existing divisions to ensure standards of quality are being met. The Board makes annual reports to the General Assembly regarding public education in the Commonwealth and is further charged with certifying to the school board of each division a list of persons for the office of division superintendent of schools, one of whom the school board ultimately selects to fill the position. The Board also approves all educational materials used in the public schools. Supervision of school divisions is conducted by individual school boards.<ref>[http://legis.state.va.us/laws/search/constitution.htm 'Legislative Information System', Constitution of Virginia, June 10, 2010]</ref>

Ratings are also given based on school and school division adherence to the goals of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which requires 100 percent proficiency in reading and mathematics by 2014.
+
 
+
School's state accreditation is based on performance in English, history, mathematics and science.
+
 
+
Schools and school divisions, as well as the State, are rated as achieving Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) if they meet or exceed annual benchmarks in reading and mathematics.<ref>[http://www.doe.virginia.gov/statistics_reports/school_report_card/accountability_guide.shtml 'Virginia Department of Education', School Report Card Accountability Guide, June 14, 2010]</ref>
