Advisory committees established by the Chesterfield County School Board are one way that community members connect with schools. Advisory committee members are appointed from each of the county’s five magisterial districts and include parents, teachers, staff members, students and other community members interested in helping Chesterfield County Public Schools achieve its vision of providing “an engaging and relevant education that prepares every student to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing world.”
