Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee wants your thoughts

Henrico Schools’ Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee wants your input! Your thoughts will help inform the committee’s approach to encouraging greater equity and opportunity throughout the school division. The committee is hoping to get input from one person in each HCPS household. You can take the survey on equity and diversity in schools through Feb. 28.

 

Next month, watch your inbox for an additional chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school. HCPS conducts a divisionwide stakeholder survey regularly to find out the thoughts of parents and guardians across Henrico County. You’ll get an email from the group conducting the survey March 11, with a link to the questionnaire; complete the survey by March 29 to voice your opinions.
