Equity Advisory Committee (EAC)

Formed in 2017, the Equity Advisory Committee (EAC) was charged with identifying current and best-practice findings in the division, and making recommendations that would enhance current practices or introduce new ones.  

EAC Purpose: To support every Chesterfield County student being afforded the same opportunities, regardless of a student’s zip code and honor the division’s core value of equity, which is the commitment to provide fair and unbiased access to all resources and opportunities.  

 

Members: Consists of community members, parents and CCPS staff members.  

 

Current Work: As part of the committee’s work, the group was tasked with providing an annual report surrounding educational equity and recommendations for enhanced practices.  The whole-group was divided in subcommittees to look at practices and policies across the areas of: access and opportunity, disciplinary practices, engaging stakeholders, policy and practice, professional development and staffing, recruiting and retaining.  This work led to the EAC presenting 27 final recommendations for implementation consideration.  Of the 27 recommendations, 16 are either, in progress or have been addressed.  11 are currently categorized as pending. 

The Equity Advisory Committee continues to meet monthly, both as a whole-group and in subcommittees.  Updates will continue to be provided for our community.

Community counseling agencies and family resource list in Chesterfield County

Chesterfield County Public Schools (CCPS) maintains an open list for parents of public and private mental health and counseling service providers. The placement on the CCPS list does not serve as an endorsement or recommendation of the listed providers. Furthermore, placement on the provider list is not an acknowledgement of an individual service provider’s qualifications, experience, or overall quality. The CCPS list is a referral document offered by the school division for the convenience of our students and families. All financial arrangements remain between the family and the individual service provider. CCPS shall not be liable for damages and/or costs of any nature arising from the use of this list and/or for the mental health or counseling services obtained from providers on the list.
