The purpose of this forum is to invite input and discussion from Gloucester citizens, educators, business and community leaders, parents, and students about steps we can take on a local level to promote community-wide commitment to facility improvement recommendations from the Gloucester High School Master Plan Study.

Having heard from higher education, industry, businesses, and military that contemporary high school graduates need skills and attributes such as critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and citizenship to be successful in life, the Virginia Board of Education is redesigning expectations for high schools and developing a more contemporary “Profile of a Virginia Graduate.” The new Virginia Graduate Profile describes the knowledge, skills, experiences, and attributes that students must attain to be successful in college, the work force, and to be “life ready” in an economy and a world characterized by rapid change.

Idea: Gymnasium

Amy Aune 3 months ago

It would be nice if the gym could accommodate bars for gymnastics so that meets and events can be held at the high school instead of Botetourt, which is the only school with that option. This would allow more space for patrons of gymnastics events and would allow more groups to participate.
