Chesterfield County School Board seeks applicants for advisory committee openings

Advisory committees established by the Chesterfield County School Board are one way that community members can connect with the school division. 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.

Members serve two- or three-year terms. One seat is currently open. People interested in serving should apply no later than Dec. 14 by filling out an application at mychesterfieldschools.com/community/school-board-advisory-committees/. Each committee meets several times throughout the year; meetings are open to the public.

There is one opening on the following advisory committee:

The Special Education Advisory Committee has one opening for the Matoaca District. This committee is composed of parents, professionals and others appointed to provide advice, assistance and recommendations concerning the needs in the education of students with disabilities in Chesterfield County Public Schools. Meeting dates will be announced. This is a three-year term, and the applicant must have a special education child currently being served at Chesterfield County Public Schools.

All district representatives must live in the magisterial district of the seat for which they are applying. Currently, there are no openings on the Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee, the School Health Advisory Board, the Gifted Education Advisory Committee and the Citizens Budget Advisory Committee.
