Check out the fall season of HCPS’ Bridge Builders Academy family workshops

Henrico, Va. Sept. 12, 2022 — The Bridge Builders Academy workshop series provides information and builds connections among families, the community and Henrico County Public Schools. The series is open to all residents, regardless of whether they have students enrolled in the school division.

The workshops kick off at 6 p.m. Tuesday with a virtual workshop on resources to support your student during the 2022-23 school year. 

Each of the workshops in the series represents one of four “learning strands,” or categories. The learning strands are: Beyond the Classroom; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Exceptional Education; and Information, Access and Opportunities.

Most Bridge Builders Academy workshops are virtual, and students, staff and members of the public can participate using Microsoft Teams. More information about the workshops, as well as instructions and links for participating, are at the Bridge Builders Academy webpage at Many workshops are recorded for later viewing, and you can watch past workshops by going to the Bridge Builders Academy page.
