  • Time To Re-Register Your Student

    It’s time to complete your online re-registration forms. Update your bus requests, phone numbers, and more to get ready for next year. (This process does not guarantee a spot on the bus next year, but it will help the City make plans for next year’s school bus routes since the bus driver shortage continues.) Help us help you! To give our partners in Pupil Transportation the best chance to serve as many students as possible, we ask you to complete the forms by June 29! Back-to-School Forms: Back-to-school forms have been posted to PowerSchool (select the child you want to update first, then click ...

  • Important Updates to School Transportation

    On the afternoon of August 14, we sent out personalized updates about each student’s transportation status (for example, “in walk zone”, “assigned to bus”, “assigned to waitlist”, etc.) If you did not receive an update for one of your students, please call the school. Have questions? Read on. On August 2, 2022, we sent individualized notifications to students alerting them as to whether they are in the walk zone or the bus zone for their school. Due to the bus driver shortage, not all students in the bus zone will receive bus assignments. Bus assignments will be released in August. Please make a ...

  • Summer 2022 News and Highlights

      A Word from Dr. Gurley Dear staff and families – I hope your summer is off to a great start. I’m writing with an update about school transportation – and it’s not the update I wanted to give. But despite the City’s best efforts to hire more school bus drivers, we expect to have even fewer bus routes this fall than last year. This national school bus driver shortage is not going away, so it’s time for us to look at new solutions. Here is an overview of the strategies and investments we are putting into place starting this fall: Strategy 1: Maintain bus ...

  • Share Your Feedback about Next CHS Principal

    Dear CHS staff and families – I’m writing with an update about the hiring of the next principal for CHS. Dr. I leaves big shoes to fill, but we will work together to find the right person. The position opened last week, and we already have the basis for a strong pool of candidates. Soon, we hope to convene an interview committee that includes staff and family representatives. Please complete this short survey about your priorities and hopes for the next principal. These responses will guide the work of this committee. In addition, as part of the survey, you can express your willingness ...

    Charlottesville City Schools is introducing our new 2022 Summer Opportunities online hub. This page is full of academic and enrichment opportunities for your children which are run by our division, the City of Charlottesville, or program partners in our schools.

    May 2022 News & Highlights

        A Word from Dr. Gurley Dear staff and families – It’s hard to believe that we’re at the end of the year! Our schools’ calendars are filled with spring concerts, field days, and school-wide morning meetings (including one that memorably culminated in a principal-turned-human-ice-cream-sundae). Stepping-up events and the CHS graduation at Ting Pavilion are around the corner. Check your school calendars for dates. Through all the moments of both effort and fun, our students are making the connections that will serve them for a lifetime. As we wrap up this year, I want to take a moment to say thank you. COVID has ...
