LAST Chance, we still need you to help us prepare for an eventual return of students for in-person instruction. The school division requests ALL parents update ParentVUE with several key pieces of student-related information. Parents will need to respond for EACH child they have in our school division. Please update this data by August 16. (Staff members will follow up by phone with those who do not complete this request.) Access to ParentVUE is available via computer or iOS/Android app where the district url is

Chesterfield County Public Schools is excited to offer students the opportunity to take their fall NWEA MAP tests from home prior to the beginning of school. Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a suite of assessments that tell us where students currently are in reading in mathematics, and how much they have grown over time.

Students in grades 2-10 take this assessment three times a year (fall, winter, and spring). Due to a loss of in-person instruction due to COVID-19, it is even more important this fall that teachers have a better idea of where students are so that we know where to start to craft a more personalized learning journey for each student when we return to school. To that end, we are offering the opportunity for your student to be tested from home before school starts.

The CCPS MAP Landing Page will give you more information about what this assessment is, what to expect when your child is testing, how long the test will take, as well as the opportunity for a practice test. Our plan is to have test sessions available between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily, with two evening sessions scheduled twice each week. More information to come!

Finally, the YMCA is offering Childcare at several high schools in the Chesterfield area. Please visit their website for more information. Registration is first come first served.

Thank you for your continued support,

Dr. Wilson
