News Release: 10/8/2019 Chesterfield School Board approves 2019-20 calendar modificationsDuring its business meeting Monday night, the Chesterfield County School Board approved modifications to the 2019-20 school calendar that closes school for students on Virginia’s presidential primary day and provides for some of that instructional time to be made up.As a result of this change:
- Tuesday, March 3 is a student holiday for all students. For teacher purposes, it will be half teacher workday and half school-based professional development.
- Friday, March 13 is a full day of instruction for students instead of a three-hour early release for teacher professional development.
- Friday, March 20 is a full day of instruction for students attending a year-round elementary school, Bellwood and Falling Creek, instead of a three-hour early release for a teacher workday.
With the approved March 3 calendar change, Chesterfield County Public Schools will still exceed the state requirement of 990 instructional hours, provide residents with additional parking opportunities to vote and continue to promote a safe, supportive and nurturing learning environment for students.
