Chesterfield County Public Schools 2015-16

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, which are the bedrock of the Design for Excellence 2020 strategic plan, 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.
