Advisory committees established by the Chesterfield County School Board are one way that community members connect with their local 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 creating a better tomorrow.

The School Board is currently seeking applicants for the following advisory committee seat:

  • Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee (ESAC) – Bermuda District

The purpose of the ESAC is to review, evaluate and make recommendations with regard to current and best practice efforts to sustain and enhance the quality of life as directly tied to school operations and facilities, as well as general public awareness.

The School Board may request that the ESAC review, but not be limited to, topics such as environmental quality, environmental sustainability, energy, local sourcing of food, and reduction of food waste. The recommendations of the ESAC will be submitted in writing directly to the School Board and the superintendent.

Recommendations may be forwarded to the Citizens Budget Advisory Committee for further consideration if a recommendation has a fiscal impact.
