Chesterfield County School Board seeks applicants for advisory committee openings

Posted on

Advisory committees established by the Chesterfield County School Board are one way 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 depending on the committee. Ten seats are currently open. People interested in serving should apply no later than May 31 by filling out an application at http://mychesterfieldschools.com/family-and-community-engagement/school-board-advisory-committees/. Each committee meets several times throughout the year; meetings are open to the public.

There are openings on these advisory committees:

  • The Citizens Budget Advisory Committee has one opening for a Bermuda District representative. The committee helps evaluate and makes recommendations on the allocation of resources in alignment with the school division’s strategic innovation plan to help ensure a high-quality, effective and efficient school division. Meeting dates and times will be announced. This is a two-year term.
  • The School Health Advisory Board Committee has three openings for the Clover Hill District, two for the Matoaca and Midlothian districts, and one for the Bermuda District. The School Health Advisory Board assists the School Board with the development of health policy and the evaluation of the status of school health, health education, the school environment and health services. This is a three-year term.
  • The Gifted Education Advisory Board Committee has one opening for the Midlothian District. The Gifted Education Advisory Committee is a VDOE-recommended committee which includes parents, school administrators, counselors, teachers, school psychologists, Gifted Education Department staff and community members. A designated School Board member attends Committee meetings to obtain key information related to Gifted Services within the school division and to offer valuable input from a School Board perspective throughout the year. This is a three-year term.

Currently, there are no openings on the Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee or the Special Education Advisory Committee.
