    Statement from Dr. Gurley and School Board in Response to Shootings in Uvalde, Texas

    With broken hearts, we are writing in response to the senseless gun violence and tragic deaths today at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Our hearts go out to the students, families, staff, and community members. This message is in many ways a painful repetition of what we have said in response to earlier shootings across our country, including ten days ago at Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo and at schools such as Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida or Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. What Will We Do? Our first priority tonight is to equip you and our own staff ...

  • Response to Shootings in Buffalo from the School Board and Superintendent

    May 15, 2022 Dear staff and families– We are writing to condemn the racist violence in Buffalo and extend sympathy to all who were directly impacted by the shootings. However, the sad reality is that all of us are impacted, especially our Black students, staff, and families. Our nation has seen too much gun violence and too many manifestations of white supremacy. These tragedies have targeted not only Black people, but Asians, Jews, and many others. As we approach the five-year mark of the neo-Nazi rallies in our own community, we are all too aware of the lasting impact of hate and violence. However, ...

  • April 2022 News & Highlights

      A Word from Dr. Gurley Dear families, We are celebrating an enormous win for our students: Our hopes for school reconfiguration are now becoming a reality. Within five years, we will see our elementaries become K-5 schools, with our current kindergarteners on track to be the first class of 5th graders in their neighborhood schools. Buford Middle School will become a proper 6-8 middle school, with vast improvements to facilities and learning spaces. Walker will become a centralized preschool that provides wraparound services for qualifying students and their families. See our website for details. Our community has said for more than ten years ...

  • March 2022 News and Highlights

      A Word from Dr. Gurley Dear families, Good evening! As I begin my sixth month as the proud superintendent of Charlottesville City Schools, I am reflecting with gratitude on all the gifts of our community: the innovative teachers, the tireless staff, the amazing students. We have faced many challenges this year but we are truly #BetterTogetherCCS. I want to give an update about school reconfiguration. “Reconfiguration” is such a technical-sounding term, but at heart what it means is making changes to our schools so that students are in environments that will support them best. As part of this process, we need to invest ...
