The information in this handbook has been collected and compiled using data current at the time of publication. As an organization responds to new information and plans for improvement, it may need to revise the policies and regulations that communicate expectations for students. Policies and regulations are available online at mychesterfieldschools.com under the School Board tab in the School Board policies section. As those occur, Chesterfield County Public Schools will communicate those to students and their parents or guardians. The most recently published expectations will guide our work and will be included in future editions of the parent handbook.
