Survey for Parents, Staff, and Community Members

The Virginia Department of Education is asking for feedback about Virginia’s plan to implement the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015(ESSA).  ESSA replaces No Child Left Behind and provides states with flexibility to improve accountability systems, assessments, and overall approaches to school improvement.  School accountability systems evaluate schools based on multiple factors and provide important information to school administrators, teachers, parents, and the community about school performance.  The purpose of this survey is to identify those factors, also known as accountability indicators, which you think are important to know about schools.  

The survey is open to any interested stakeholder, including - but not limited to - parents, educators, school administrators, school board members, business professionals, advocates and community members. Participation is voluntary. The survey is anonymous; participants will not give their names on the survey, and it will not be possible to match survey answers to participant identities.

Please consider taking a few minutes to participate in the survey.  It is an opportunity for educators, parents, and community members to have a voice in the development of future accountability measures for the state.  The survey is active through November 9th.

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 hope the school year is off to a great start!  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 September 2016 Monthly Perfect Attendance prize is:

Sweet Frog in Colonial Heights

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.
