When the S. family filed their children’s test scores with Prince George County, they blacked out individual subtest scores, since only the composite score matters under Virginia law.

A school representative sent back a terse letter demanding that the family show them the subtest scores. The letter said the school system would report them to social services if they failed to comply.

Members of HSLDA, they contacted us for help. Senior Counsel Scott Woodruff wrote a letter to the representative explaining that Virginia law required the submission of only a composite score.

The school representative wrote back and dropped her request for individual subtest scores.
