Update (February 21, 2023): Troy Hedblom, the current Assistant Superintendent of Business Services for Colonial Heights Public Schools, will serve as the immediate interim Superintendent of Schools per the School Board Chair Steve Neece. Another, more permanent interim will be appointed on February 24, 2023.


This week, the Colonial Heights School Board has come to a mutual separation agreement with Dr. William Sroufe, the division superintendent.  Dr. Sroufe will be taking a leave of absence beginning this Saturday, February 18, and ending on June 30, 2023, when his official tenure as superintendent will come to a close.  The school board will soon begin the search for a new superintendent and appoint an interim superintendent to manage the day-to-day operations in the meantime.

We would like to thank Dr. Sroufe for his many contributions to our division, including keeping our schools open during the COVID-19 pandemic, expanding instructional opportunities with Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School, and refining best practices in the science of reading.  He oversaw updates to our playgrounds, message boards, HVAC systems, window packages, and security measures, as well as improvements to the fine arts wing of the high school.  Dr. Sroufe’s administrative team also brought in more than a million dollars in competitive grants and improved our ranking in the Commonwealth on SOL performance.
