All Colonial Heights Schools Meet Full SOL Accreditation for 15th Year In a Row!

All schools in Colonial Heights have met the SOL accreditation standards of the Virginia Department of Education for the 15th year in a row. 

Last year, only 37 of the Commonwealth’s 132 school divisions had all schools accredited.  This places Colonial Heights Public Schools in an elite group.  This success can be attributed directly to the efforts of our teachers in the classrooms, the diligence of our students, our parent partners, and school administration providing quality leadership and support for their staff members and students.

Thank you to all of our Faculty and Staff!  Congratulations to our students!

The Colonial Facts: Part I

Attendance News

We are on the home stretch - let's finish strong and come to school every day!  To recognize students who had perfect attendance the previous month, one student’s name from each school will be randomly selected and the child will receive a prize.  The generous donor for the April 2017 Monthly Perfect Attendance prize is:

El Caporal Mexican Restaurant

Here are some helpful hints that may improve a student’s school attendance:

  • Parents should emphasize the importance of school at home.  If a parent believes that school is important, the child will too.
  • Reward good or improved attendance with praise or a treat – let the student know that exemplary attendance is noticed and appreciated.
  • Try to schedule any appointments after school hours or when school is not in session.
  • Avoid planning family vacations that conflict with regular school days.
You are welcome to check out for additional ideas and information.
