Advisory Commission on Student Success
Greensville County Public Schools has launched the first Advisory Commission on Student Success that will assist school leaders in identifying the challenges and barriers to student success and then, recommend actions to move the school system forward. The Commission is composed of 35 community leaders, faith leaders, parents, citizens, educators and students.
"We are so pleased to have the support of our leaders and citizens who will help us shape the future of our community's children," said School Board Chairman, Rhonda Jones-Gilliam. "Our work is urgent and improtant, and we believe that everyone can play an important role in ensuring the succes of our students."
The Advisory Commission will meet three times in May and June to learn key information about the school system, discuss the challenges and barriers to student success, identify the strengths of the school system and surrounding community, and then recommend action steps to ensure the success of every student. Following educators' summer work, the Commission will reconvene in the fall to hear how its recommendations will be incorporated into school division operations.
