The meetings will take place in the auditorium of the New Bridge Learning Center, 5915 Nine Mile Road, Henrico, Virginia. Closed sessions will be held during the work session as deemed necessary.

This requirement is for visitors as well as employees, regardless of their vaccination status. Should you plan to attend, please be prepared to wear a mask or facial covering.
- There will be a public forum during the monthly meeting for interested citizens to address the Board in person on any matter of concern about the school division. Citizens are required to sign up in advance via an online form by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 23. Speakers who sign up in advance may not transfer their speaking spot to another individual. To ensure the School Board the opportunity to hear from as many constituents as possible, it is requested that only one member of each household reserve a spot to speak. Individuals providing public comment on behalf of a group may speak and then provide the Board hard copies of written comments from each member of their group. Each speaker will be limited to two minutes.
To ensure all constituents have the opportunity to comment, written comments may also be provided via an electronic format in lieu of attending or speaking in person. Written comments must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 23, by going to the School Board webpage at https://henricoschools.us/school-board/ and clicking “Submit written comments for the next work session.” Written comments submitted within the deadline are an official part of the public record for the meeting and will be posted for public view in “BoardDocs,” where all meeting materials are archived. Board members will receive written comments and equal consideration and attention will be given to both written and in-person comments.
