Henrico County Public Schools’ Bridge Builders Academy features virtual gatherings and discussions on a host of topics — many related to predominantly virtual learning. Our “Community Conversations” panel discussions about racial equity and change was a popular and powerful addition to the series. The Bridge Builders Academy is presented by HCPS’ Department of Family and Community Engagement and the HCPS Family and Educator Resource Center. For more information about the Family and Educator Resource Center, visit the center’s webpage.
