HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – Henrico County Public Schools is seeking help from parents for re-imaging middle schools in the county. HCPS is asking Henrico families to take a brief online survey to provide feedback about the exploration of additional middle school specialty centers.
HCPS is considering establishing centers, called Young Scholar Academies, to enable students in grades six through eight to concentrate in a particular academic area. The proposed programs would add more options to Henrico Schools’ three existing middle school International Baccalaureate programs.
The survey is available here or by going to the Henrico schools website and looking under “Hot Topics.” The survey will solicit input through November 28th and is open to families at all grade levels. Families can also contact their school directly to obtain a paper copy of the survey in English or Spanish.
The programs would offer a theme or focus designed to give middle school students an opportunity to explore a special interest, gift, talent or skill. The centers would aim to provide more high-quality options for students with diverse learning needs.
The survey can be completed in 2-3 minutes.
