Legislative Program

The 2022-23 school year has brought a welcomed sense of normalcy for teachers and students. However, challenges remain, many tied to continuing impacts of the pandemic. This includes getting students back on course where learning loss has slowed progress. A national shortage of teachers and school bus drivers continues, and recruiting and retaining employees in many positions is more difficult than in previous years.

Here is the good news: our enrollment continues to rise because Chesterfield schools have a stellar reputation for academics. We are proud that despite ongoing challenges, Chesterfield County Public Schools continues to be a leader in public education:

  • 100% of schools are accredited.
  • The on-time graduation rate was 91.49% for the class of 2022, and the dropout rate was 5.97%; these are improvements from pre-pandemic numbers.
  • Chesterfield Virtual School became the first K-8 virtual school in Virginia.
  • Students earned 8,075 industry credentials through career and technical education.
  • Chesterfield County Public Schools staff members consistently win statewide honors.

As we implement our strategic plan, Imagine Tomorrow, Team Chesterfield is creating classrooms of the future that will allow our students to reach even greater heights. Every day, our focus remains the same: we work to provide amazing learning experiences in remarkable learning environments while encouraging students and staff to exemplify personal responsibility and supportive relationships.

The school system is committed to providing all students with a safe, supportive and nurturing learning environment. But, Chesterfield County Public Schools – and Virginia’s other public school systems – cannot do this alone. Many of the challenges we face can be aided through a statewide legislative approach.
