Charlottesville City Schools (CCS), also known as Charlottesville City Public Schools, is the 55th largest (in terms of number of full time students) while the surrounding Albemarle County Public Schools is the 19th largest of the 132 public school districts in Virginia. According to the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), during the 2020–2021 school year, Charlottesville City Schools (CCS) served 4,290 students,[1] including 294 non-resident students. Non-resident students make up about 7 percent of the division’s K-12 enrollment.[2] Roughly 200 preschoolers are spread across the six elementary schools in 20 classrooms, according to division data.[citation needed]

Current Superintendent

Royal A. Gurley Jr., 40, began the post on October 4, 2021 with a four-year contract. [3] Charlottesville School Board chairperson Lisa Larson-Torres said in a statement the board was "united in our support" of Gurley.

Transportation

2022-2023 school year

At the beginning of the school year, due to a bus driver shortage, around 1,200 kids were walking or riding bikes to city school while only 900 were taking the public school bus.[4] As of Friday, August 12, 2022 the school system only has nine bus drivers, CCS says it needs a total of 31 drivers. School started on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. [5]

Reconfiguring

City schools plan to move away from the scattered facilities through reconfiguring Walker Upper Elementary School into a centralized preschool center. Under the reconfiguration — which includes sending fifth grade to the elementary schools and sixth grade to an expanded or rebuilt Buford Middle School — the division’s preschool programs will be housed under one roof, allowing the division to offer wrap-around services.[6] The city released a request for proposal for the reconfiguration project on Dec. 18, 2020 with January 30, 2021 as the deadline for firms to submit their proposals.

Governance

The Charlottesville City School Board is the body that makes decisions related to Charlottesville City Schools. In 2004, the Charlottesville City Council (2004-2005) passed an ordinance changing the method of selecting school board members to direct election by the voters.[7]. Prior to switching to a city-wide elected school board in 2006, the City Council appointed the seven board members.

History

Desegregation

In 1954, the Supreme Court rules in Brown v. Board of Education that racial segregation of children in public schools is unconstitutional. During the 1965-66 school year, all Charlottesville City Schools were completely desegregated.

Dress codes and school uniforms

CCS does not require uniforms while many private schools in the area typically do have uniforms. In November 2018, the Charlottesville School Board unanimously passed a resolution that bans students from wearing clothing that depicts symbols. The Code of Student Conduct and Dress Code are currently being revised. During the 2021-22 school year, they will be finalized. [8] In 1995, the General Assembly of Virginia enacted a law that gives school boards the authority to establish uniform policies and generally directs them to consider ways to promote community involvement, legal rights and families' ability to purchase the clothing. [9] The Virginia Board of Education published an 11-page book of guidelines to help school boards devise requirements.[10]

Standards of Accreditation (SOA)

Each school's accreditation rating is based on the proportion of students who pass state standardized tests.

  • Level One: Meets or exceeds state standard or sufficient improvement.
  • Level Two: Near state standard or sufficient improvement.
  • Level Three: Below state standard.

The Virginia Board of Education "shall review the accreditation status of a school once every three years if the school has been fully accredited for three consecutive years." Va. Code § 22.1-253.13:3

Funding

Per-pupil expenditure

Per Pupil Expenditures (Local) $12,044, the 6th highest in the state. Superintendent's Annual Report 2017-2018, Table 15.

Charlottesville City Council (2020-2021) Adopted Budget for FY 2021

In FY2020, CCS requested funding from the City Council to hire six (6) gifted certification teachers for grades K-6. The cost to finance these new fulltime positions was $468K. There were two (2) sources (Strategic Initiatives Fund-$156K; City-Wide Reserve Fund-$312K) used to fund this mid-year expenditure. In its revised budget for FY21, the CCS requested $1.3M in funding to address these positions and other expenditures. This would provide CCS with $58.7M of its $88.8M total budget for FY21. These additional funds will come from the City reserve fund and GF. This will reduce the city's reserve fund from $7.9M to $6.6M.

The Budget Guidelines state that the schools receive a target amount that equates to 40% of new real estate and personal property tax revenue. Due to COVID -19, the FY 21 Budget reflects level funding with the City’s total FY20 contribution.[11]

City Council's Adopted Budget for FY 2019-2020

Included in the City Council's Adopted Budget for FY 2019-2020, City Schools will receive a local contribution of $57,366,623. In addition, City Schools will receive $1.25 million a year in an unallocated fund that the schools can use for priority capital improvement initiatives of their choice, over $1.9 million for general capital improvement dollars and HVAC replacement funds a year and $3 million in pre-construction funds for the schools reconfiguration project.

Future funding concerns

Faced with uncertainty over state funding, some members of the School Board began raising the issue in the spring of 2012 of creating a public education foundation to raise money to help pay for a portion of the school system. Such a system would be built on the efforts of the Public Education Fund of Charlottesville-Albemarle. [12]

In 2009, MGT of America conducted a review of the system.

Capacity issues

A study by VMDO commissioned by the school board in 2017 revealed that five of the six elementary schools are over their functional capacity, meaning they are above 85 percent of their maximum capacity. In the 2000's, the school system was considering shuttering a school but planning may soon get underway for a new school. [13]

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) annually collects statistics on the number of students enrolled in public school on September 30. [14]

Reconfiguration

Ambox notice.png This article documents a current event. Information may change rapidly as the event progresses.

The system is currently seeking to reconfigure the system to add 6th grade to Buford, move 5th grade to elementary schools, and turn Walker into an early childhood education center. [15]

Background

Since 1988, the City of Charlottesville's school system has maintained two separate schools for grades 5-6 and 7-8 for the students between elementary and high school.

In May 2008, the school system began an efficiency study as part of an agreement with the Virginia Department of Planning and Budget. The firm MGT of America was hired to conduct a review to identify best practices. The state paid for 75 percent of the review. The report was presented to the School Board on January 8, 2009 with five options.

  1. Leave City school division as is: 6 elementary schools (pK-4), 1 upper elementary (5-6), 1 middle school (7-8), 1 high school (9-12)
  2. Close 1 elementary school
  3. 6 elementary schools (pK-5), 2 middle schools (6-8), 1 high school (9-12)
  4. 6 elementary schools (pK-5), 1 middle school (6-8), 1 high school (9-12)
  5. Other reconfiguration possibilities

Options 1 and 4 were pursued. [16]

On October 21, 2010, the School Board voted unanimously on Option 4 to proceed with study of a single middle school housing grades 6-8 at either the Walker Upper Elementary School or Buford Middle School complex. Grade 5 would return to existing elementary schools.[17] [18]

At the time, the hope was that grade reconfiguration changes would occur after the 2011-12 school year and that the major renovation projects were expected to cost around $36 million. This did not come to pass. [19]

On February 17, 2011, the Charlottesville School Board decided to create a consolidated middle school at Buford Middle School. Walker would be refurbished for preschool, adult education, and central office staffing needs. [20] [21]

However, the plan stalled but was reexamined later in the decade.

In December 2019, the city issued a request of proposals for a firm to come up with a new plan for how to proceed due that was due on January 30, 2020. [22]

In 2021, VMDO was awarded a $1.47 million contract for design services for the reconfiguration and renovation of Buford Middle School and Walker Upper Elementary School. [23]

On May 21, 2021, they presented six concepts to the School Board at a retreat held in Short Pump. [15]

Current superintendent

Royal A. Gurley Jr. will become the superintendent on October 4, 2021. [24]

Gurley becomes the first Black man and the first gay man to lead the Charlottesville school system. Gurley succeeds Dr. Rosa Atkins. Atkins held the position for 15 years before moving into a leadership role with the state Department of Education. Acting Superintendent Jim Henderson came out of retirement to serve as the bridge from Atkins to her permanent replacement. [25] The School Board chairperson says members are 'united in our support' of him.'[26]

Previous superintendents

Trailblazer Day

On November 21, 2019, the school system celebrated its first Trailblazer day to honor the children and parents who worked to desegregate the city's schools in 1959 and 1962. [30]
