Virginia SOL Correlation Guides for D.A.R.E.

The Virginia D.A.R.E. Training Center tasked one of our D.A.R.E. Educational Advisers, Bonnie Bazemore, to develop an updated Virginia SOL correlation guide for both elementary and middle school D.A.R.E. This exhausting job was complete in June of 2016. The VDTC is proud to release these documents for D.A.R.E. officers to share with their local school districts.
