SOL Correlation by Task

A correlation between each state-approved CTE course and Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) for English, History and Social Science, Mathematics, and Science has been completed by teams of CTE and academic specialists. The correlation identifies, on a statewide basis, standards reinforced by specific tasks/competencies within each course.

In this course, the following tasks/competencies reinforce the standards listed beside them. Teachers may identify additional reinforcements in locally developed instructional materials.
