Henrico Education

Mission, Vision, Beliefs and Parameters.

Under the leadership of the school board and superintendent, the division embarked on a long range planning effort to develop a strategic plan to guide the division to new levels of excellence. A collaborative planning process was used that involved multiple stakeholders throughout the process. This inclusive approach began in fall 2009 and resulted in the creation of a plan that reflects a collective vision and invests the community in the direction and measures of success for individual students, schools, and the division.

Henrico County Public Schools will be the PREMIER school division in the United States.
