Did you know that Henrico Schools has a Lay Advisory Committee – and you’re invited to its meetings? The committee advises the School Board on important educational matters. It acts as a liaison among the School Board, parents and guardians, the Board of Supervisors, community members and teachers – and brings together members of these groups to discuss various issues. I was there for the first of five meeting throughout the school year to share details about our Strategic Plan and Henrico Learner Profile. Perhaps the best part was to sit, take questions and share new ideas with LAC members. Anyone interested in education and the school system is welcome to attend these meetings. The remaining meetings for 2018-19 are below.
