PETERSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — While most students in the area have another few weeks of summer vacation, school for some students in Petersburg begins today.
Students at A.P. Hill Elementary and Peabody Middle School return to classes Wednesday morning. It’s the second year for the year-round curriculum for these two schools, a measure aimed at improving performance for the two schools, which have struggled to meet state requirements.
Teachers plan to use the extra 20 days of instruction to focus on math and science.
School starts at most other area schools early next month.
