Speakers Bureau offers straight talk about schools #
Chesterfield County Public Schools is on the go, connecting with students, families and community members where they are. We’re rolling out a brand-new Speakers Bureau as part of this outreach. Through in-person presentations to community groups, the Speakers Bureau shares in a lively way the work of #oneCCPS.
Community groups that schedule speakers are invited to sign up to hear “How the Pie Gets Sliced,” “Keeping Up With Cul-de-Sacs,” “Breakfast to Bus Stops” or another Speakers Bureau topic. To schedule a speaker, just fill out the simple form on this page.
CCPSOnline registration closes April 29 #
CCPSOnline offers a comprehensive catalog of high school credit classes taught by Chesterfield County Public Schools teachers. Students can take one, two or all of their classes in a no-walls, no-bells, no-limits virtual environment. Part-time students take courses to free space in their schedule, access those not offered at their school or get ahead of graduation requirements. Full-time students leverage the flexibility of online learning to meet the unique needs of their lifestyle. Students should talk to their school counselor about including CCPSOnline in their schedule. Registration runs Feb. 1-April 29 for the 2022-23 school year and for summer 2022.
