  • PCPS Selected for Virginia is for Learners Innovation Network

    PCPS selected for Virginia is for Learners Innovation Network

    In July 2021, Powhatan County Public Schools was selected into the 3rd cohort for the Virginia is for Learners Innovation Network (VALIN).  PCPS was part of the inaugural cohort in 2018. 

    VALIN is composed of annual cohorts of Lead Innovation Teams from school divisions in Virginia. Each cohort consists of teams from up to 35 divisions. The Network connects educational innovators who purposely work together to identify, use, and share strategies and actions designed to implement the Profile of a Virginia Graduate.

    Teams meet during the cohort cycle in Institutes designed to spark ideas and actions for local innovation initiatives. Teams also participate in a coaching model designed to support implementation of local innovation initiatives.

    Division Lead Innovation Teams research and develop innovative approaches designed to ensure that all learners develop complex competencies essential to long-term success in homes, communities, and the workforce. As teams determine the effectiveness of innovations, they share artifacts, media, and “how to” information through face-to-face and virtual communication across the Commonwealth. The Network is a conduit for solutions to challenges, leveraging resources across divisions, and connecting educational communities in Virginia and beyond.

  • Operoo!

    We are excited to let you know we are adopting a new system named Operoo.

    The Operoo system makes it very easy for you to respond to forms using your mobile phone, tablet, or PC. No more paperwork! No more lost forms or notes covered in a squashed banana in a backpack. No more concerns about children missing out on information when they are absent.

    It will greatly reduce the burden on you to provide information that is repetitive. For example, it will allow you to keep your or your child’s emergency contact and medical information up to date; so you don’t need to repeat this information again while your child is at Powhatan County Schools. It also puts you in control of this data so you’ll always know what information is shared with us.

    You don’t need to do anything else until you receive an email invitation from us asking you to sign up for your Operoo account. After that, you’ll receive notifications whenever there is an electronic form to complete for your child’s school.

    Powhatan County Schools will ensure that your or your child’s information is only visible to relevant teachers and staff and will be managed in accordance with our privacy policies. Details about Operoo’s security and privacy procedures can be found here: https://www.operoo.com/terms-policies-security/.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. You can visit the Operoo website for more information here: www.operoo.com. There is also a parent introduction page here: https://www.operoo.com/intro-for-parents/.

  • All Powhatan Schools Accredited

    On Tuesday, October 8th the School Board received the linked report on accreditation for the 2019-2020 school year. We are thrilled that each school in Powhatan is accredited. Moreover, we celebrate the hard work of our students and staff in closing achievement gaps. It is important to note that accreditation is almost entirely based on SOL test performance. In Powhatan County, our teachers and students teach and learn deeply well beyond SOL level knowledge. While we are proud of our SOL performance, we assess student learning in many more authentic ways to insure that our students are college and career ready.
