    Proposed Strategic Plan Presented

    A year ago work began to create a new Strategic Plan for PCPS. Staff presented the completed plan to the School Board on September 11th. The plan is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work by community and staff members to chart the course for Powhatan Schools for the next 6 years.

    The attached presentation includes the new Vision and Mission Statement, Core Beliefs, as well as four broad goals that the School Board has had a chance to review previously. The presentation also includes Key Performance Objectives (KPOs) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that will be used to track success in achieving our goals and realizing our Mission and Vision.

    The School Board is scheduled to approve the Strategic Plan at the September 25, 2018, School Board meeting.

    2018 Bus Routes Announced

    The PCPS Transportation Department has published bus routes for the 2018-19 school year. The bus routes are attached below. Please note the following potential impact to some of our routes:

    Parents,

    Please note we are in direct communication with VDOT at this time as they work to make repairs to a bridge on Rocky Ford Road before schools open. In the event repairs are not completed in time, routes PMS 70 and  PHS 4 will be directly impacted by the situation. We will contact those households with updated information at that time. Thank you for your patience as we work with VDOT to ensure the safety of your children.  

    Please be reminded that not every address is listed. If you don't see your exact address, locate the address closest to your home address for a bus number and arrival time. Arrival times are approximate and we ask you to allow 5-10 minutes either way as the routes solidify. Thank you.

  • Powhatan County School Board Approves School Attendance Area Variance Guidelines

    At its January 9th meeting, the School Board approved  a revision to its policy on school attendance areas. School Board members requested this revision to the policy so that parents may request a variance for their children to attend a school other than their assigned school. The variance must meet the following specific circumstances:
         >In-home before or after school care provided in the requested school zone; daycare that does not service the home school; or a documented hardship (i.e. financial, work schedule for which reasonable child care is difficult to obtain)
         >Residents planning to move to a new school zone, with a legally binding contract signed by all parties which is free of contingencies and to be completed within 90 days
    Parents requesting this variance must provide transportation to and from school. Any parent that wishes their child to attend a school other than their assigned school must complete the variance request form and submitted it to their child’s principal for approval.
