Boundary Adjustment Process

GCPS is currently in the planning process to open a new Goochland Elementary School in August 2024. The new school will be built with expanded capacity to alleviate overcrowding at the division's other elementary schools. Modifying attendance boundaries will move students to balance school enrollments.

A Boundary Adjustment Steering Committee made up of parents, community representatives, and staff was selected to review boundary options and make a recommendation to the Superintendent. The School Board will be presented with the Superintendent's recommendation in May and is scheduled to vote on new attendance boundaries in June 2022.

Please take a moment before March 23 to complete the attached survey.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r...

The purpose of this survey is to gather feedback regarding a set of boundary options. The school locator link provided will allow you to search by address and view the proposed boundaries in greater detail. PLEASE NOTE: NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE, AND THIS SURVEY IS INTENDED TO ENCOURAGE DISCUSSION AND FEEDBACK. All feedback will be reviewed prior to a final recommendation being made.
