Chesterfield school board to get COVID-19 update, host public hearings on budget

Chesterfield County

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – Chesterfield families who still have students in virtual learning could soon learn when their kids could step back into a classroom.

The Chesterfield School Board is set to reconvene Tuesday night to review the latest COVID-19 data. School leaders say the goal is to get middle and high school students back into in-person learning later during the third marking period.

Last month, the school board approved a plan to bring elementary students back to the classroom. Leaders cited new data that showed schools are not COVID-19 superspreaders.

Elementary school students went back to the classroom February 2.

Those who wish to speak need to notify the School Board Clerk’s Office by 2 p.m. the day the meeting. You can also sign up immediately before the meeting starts.
