Team Chesterfield families,

As we shared recently, Chesterfield County Public Schools is finalizing plans for the 2021-22 school year.

My leadership team and I continue to stress the importance of daily in-person attendance. We believe face-to-face instruction is best for students, given that students miss much more than academics when not in school. We have created safe learning environments during this international pandemic, as evidenced by the extremely low incidents of in-school transmission. Our schools are safe places for our students and staff.

The School Board received a presentation on our 2021-22 school year plans during its April 13 work session. The presentation is available here.

As noted in the presentation, we are offering students in K-8 an opportunity to attend a new Virtual Academy if they still do not feel comfortable returning to school. Students will learn synchronously online from home or another place of their choosing. They will work with a licensed CCPS teacher who may not be a teacher from their home school and likely will be in a virtual classroom with students from other schools. The school day will follow the traditional school day schedule with core courses and resource classes, as well as tiered student supports. Specialized programs (such as CBG) may not be available.

Families will decide whether to enroll in the Virtual Academy for just the first semester or the entire school year.

If your K-8 student is interested in registering for the Virtual Academy for the 2021-22 school year, please use this registration form.

CCPSOnline is another option for secondary students. Additional information about that program can be found here. Registration for CCPSOnline ends July 9.
