– Strategic Plan

What should Henrico Public Schools look like in 2025?

Henrico Schools’ 2018-25 Strategic Plan was approved by unanimous vote of the Henrico School Board at its monthly meeting on June 21, 2018. Thank you to everyone who offered feedback on the draft version of the new guiding document.

The plan was created by committees comprised of school parents, students, Henrico Schools staff members, interested citizens and others. The groups, formed in January 2018 from a pool of applicants, concentrated on different areas of the new plan. Your views, expressed in an online survey and a public hearing, were instrumental in revising the draft and creating the final plan.

Our Vision

Henrico County Public Schools believes in the right to achieve and the support to succeed for all.

Our Mission

Henrico County Public Schools, an innovative leader in educational excellence, will actively engage our students in diverse educational, social, and civic learning experiences that inspire and empower them to become contributing citizens.

What’s in the Plan

The plan includes descriptions of eight major strategic goals and how the school division plans to reach them. The goals are each tied to one or more of the four cornerstones that comprise Henrico Schools’ core values.

HCPS’ Four Cornerstones

Academic Growth

Occurring from the cumulative impact of exposure to core curricula, electives and life-skill development opportunities, and that prepares students to reach their potential.

Equity and Opportunity
