Chesterfield County Public Schools 2016-17

Every day counts in Chesterfield County Public Schools! This award-winning school system with a vision for the future is preparing every student to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing world. Chesterfield County Public Schools embraces three big ideas based on national best practices and cutting-edge research to provide an engaging and relevant education:

  • blended learning, which combines technology with face-to-face instruction and leads to anytime, anywhere learning
  • project-based learning, which promotes problem solving, collaboration and communication
  • service learning, which connects students with the community

These big ideas are the bedrock of the Design for Excellence 2020, the strategic plan of Chesterfield County Public Schools. Blended learning, project-based learning and service learning are helping students achieve these goals:

  • Goal 1 — All learners will acquire, analyze, synthesize and evaluate information to solve meaningful problems and to achieve success as productive, thriving global citizens.
  • Goal 2 — All learners will demonstrate the 21st-century learning and technology skills and knowledge that will prepare them for success in school, postsecondary education, work and life
    in a global society.
  • Goal 3 — Working in partnership with school and family, all learners will understand, model and embrace the important attitudes and attributes necessary to be responsible
    global citizens.
