    Preschool Programs

    Powhatan County Public Schools is pleased to offer a Pre-Kindergarten program for four-year-old children. The goal of the program is to provide a healthy learning environment for children who may experience factors that place them at risk for poor school performance. The selection of students will be based on student & family needs according to program guidelines for the Virginia Preschool Initiative. Enrollment priority will be given to children with the greatest number of factors that may impact their learning. Factors considered include but are not limited to:

    · Income level of the parent/legal guardian
    · Education level of the parents
    · Child characteristics
    · Family stress
    · English as a second language

    Two classes will be located at Pocahontas Elementary School. The classes will operate on the same calendar and school schedule as the elementary schools. Each class will be limited to 18 students. Children will be transported from their home school zones. *Location is subject to change.

    This is not a first-come, first-served program. To be eligible for the program, children must be legal residents of Powhatan County and be four years of age by September 30, 2020. Applications must be filled out completely. Proof of residency and financial information must be attached in order for the applicant to be considered for the program. Families will be required to attend meetings and field trips with their child in this program.

    For additional information please contact the Powhatan County Administration Office at 804-598-5700.

    Applications are available at all elementary schools: Flat Rock, Pocahontas, Powhatan and the School Administration Offices at 4920 Anderson Hwy, or online at www.powhatan.k12.va.us Applications should be returned to any elementary school or the School Administration Offices. The deadline for returning applications is May 8, 2020.

    Instructional Framework

    PCPS has developed an instructional framework to guide teaching and learning.  The DL421 (Deeper Learning for the 21st Century) Instructional Framework [attached below in PDF format] focuses on four student outcomes: Communication and Collaboration; Creativity and Innovation; Critical Thinking and Problem Solving; and Digital Fluency.  These outcomes are part of our Portrait of a Graduate [attached below in PDF format] which is a collective vision that articulates the community’s aspirations for all of our students.
