    Operation School Supplies 2019-2020

    Operation School Supplies is a program that provides free backpacks and school supplies to Powhatan County children whose families are in economic need. Students must be enrolled in grades K-12 in the Powhatan County School District to be eligible to receive free school supplies.
    Please complete the attached application in its entirety and submit it to Community Life Church, 2410 New Dorset Circle, Powhatan, VA 23139, on school supply distribution day. Your child/children may be eligible for a free backpack and school supplies if your family’s income is at or below 200% of the 2019 Federal Poverty Guidelines. You must attach one of the following documents with your application to be considered:
    • If your child is eligible to receive SNAP or reduced price/free school lunches, attach your letter from Powhatan Social Services, or
    • If your child is not eligible for the reduced/free lunch program, attach a copy of your 2018 Tax Return (delete social security numbers on tax return).
    Please list all social services being received by the family so that your family’s need can be determined. School attendance, county residency, and economic need will be verified for determination of eligibility.
    Backpacks and school supplies will be distributed at Community Life Church located at 2410 New Dorset Circle in Powhatan on Friday, August 2, from 4-7 p.m. and Saturday, August 3, from 10 a.m.–2:00 p.m. for all Kindergarten, Elementary, and Middle School students.

  • 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.
