CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Chesterfield County Public Schools are currently estimated to be at an average of 93% capacity, and with that percentage expected to rise even more, the administration is planning big changes to their facilities in response.
The Chesterfield School Board plans to renovate a school and build several new schools, some of which on the sites of existing ones.
The new Mosely Elementary, located at 7100 Magnolia Green Parkway, is set to open for the 2022-2023 school year, and work has begun on the new Falling Creek Middle School, the design for which was decided by an online vote.
