Henrico County Public Schools is updating its strategic plan to guide the school division for the next several years. All community stakeholders, including students, families, employees and interested citizens are invited to participate. 

David StephenNOV. 8: COME HEAR AN EDUCATION VISIONARY AND HELP HENRICO SCHOOLS CHART A COURSE FOR THE FUTURE: Come kick off this important process Nov. 8 with a talk by education guru David Stephen, co-founder of Boston-based New Vista Designs for Learning. Stephen’s cutting-edge work in curricula, programming and school design is informed by this essential question: How can the design of school programs and buildings best support the changing needs of 21st century students and teachers? His 45-minute speech will align with one of Henrico Schools’ four cornerstones (“Academic Progress”) and will be followed by a question period.

  • Nov. 8 at 6:30 p.m. (Hungary Creek Middle School, 4909 Francistown Road, Glen Allen, Va.)

WHAT IS THE STRATEGIC PLAN? The new plan for the years 2018 through 2025 will build on the current 2015-18 strategic plan which includes the school division’s cornerstones of Student Safety, Academic Progress, Closing Gaps, and Relationships. To view the current 2015-18 strategic plan, click here.

The new plan will provide a broad framework for the direction and priorities of Henrico County Public Schools, including:

  • Vision Statement
  • Mission Statement
  • Defined Cornerstones
  • Goals Aligned with Cornerstones
  • Prioritized Strategies Aligned with Goals
  • Desired Outcomes; How to Measure Each Goal

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES: There will be additional opportunities for community input including school-based focus groups, community input events that are open to the public, online comments, and at least one public hearing. Henrico County Public Schools will communicate those opportunities using e-mail, social media, news media, school-based resources, and this web page.
