Chesterfield Schools go back to the drawing board …
Chesterfield County Public Schools (CCPS) is back to the drawing board after a Nov. 14 meeting discussing the possibility of longer school days.
CCPS held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss a proposed change to add 15 minutes to school days in order to meet instructional time requirements without making schedules difficult for families. The meeting concluded with the board making the decision to examine more available options to allow the district to meet their seat time.
Chesterfield is the largest school district in central Virginia and currently has the state's shortest instructional day. The district says the change would help close learning gaps, align better with state requirements and keep the current start date for the next school year.
