PGCPS Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan Survey of the PGCPS Community Now Open!

Prince George County Public Schools is currently working to draft a new Comprehensive Plan that will establish goals for the community's K-12 public schools for the next five years. In preparation for goal setting, PGCPS is asking all students, parents, division employees, and community residents to participate in a brief survey. Results incorporating your views will help guide the Comprehensive Planning process by focusing on issues that are of greatest concern to the stakeholders of Prince George. Your participation in the survey is encouraged and responses will remain anonymous.


The survey will remain open through March 16th, 2021.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

Virginia Code §22.1-253.13:6 requires public school divisions to develop a comprehensive, unified long-range plan based on data collection, an analysis of the data, and how the data will be utilized to improve classroom instruction and student achievement.

This plan is to be developed with staff and community involvement and shall include, or be consistent with, all other division-wide plans required by state and federal laws and regulations. The plan is required to include the following components:

  • Objectives
  • Assessment of Achievement
  • Enrollment Forecast
  • Plan for Projecting and Managing Enrollment Changes
  • Evaluation of Regional Programs
  • Technology Plan
  • Needs Assessment
  • Corrective Action Plan (If Required)

A report is to be presented by each school board to the public by November 1 of each odd-numbered year on the extent to which the objectives of the division-wide comprehensive plan have been met during the previous two school years.

Community Involvement 

As part of the Comprehensive Plan, the community is engaged as part of an assessment of the needs of the school division and evidence of community participation, including parental participation, in the development of the plan. Additionally, the plan must include a Family Engagement Plan that details efforts to foster parent and family involvement. This plan would include strategies for building successful school and parent partnerships that will be developed with both staff and community involvement, including parental participation.
