Start of school pushed back one week

Chesterfield County School District Superintendent Dr. Harrison Goodwin announced today the start of classes for the 2020-21 school year will be pushed back one week to Aug. 24. The announcement came during an hour-long online special meeting of the Chesterfield County School Board. 

Teachers will report for duty Aug. 17. High school students will begin classes Aug. 24, while K-8 students will complete the LEAP, a five-day program for assessment and placement that will begin Aug. 24. The last day for high school students will be June 4, while the last day for K-8 students will be June 11.

There is no change planned for the major holiday breaks.

In the A/B hybrid schedule, students will attend alternate days based on an alphabetical roster with Wednesday designated as a school scrub-down and teacher work day. Two meals will be provided for all students for five days. All students have the option of either in-person or distance learning with a full semester commitment of their chosen options.  

In light of the current virus outbreak, all preventive health measures as recommended by federal and state agencies will continue to be practiced in CCSD facilities and buses. 

More information will be posted to Breaking News as details become available.
