Weekly TeacherDirect e-mail alerts inform educators of the latest Standards of Learning (SOL) instructional and assessment resources and of SOL-related professional development opportunities. This information is critical as the Commonwealth’s schools implement the Board of Education’s college- and career-ready standards in English, mathematics, science and history.

TeacherDirect updates typically include 10-12 headlines linking educators to new SOL-related content on the Virginia Department of Education’s (VDOE) Web site and to information about high-interest opportunities and events. VDOE launched the broadcast e-mail service in January 2013. By the close of the 2012-2013 school year, more than 17,000 subscriptions were received.
