Virginia Department of Education Review

Ever wonder how a governor’s school is held accountable? We don’t exactly have the same data sets (SOL scores, graduation index, etc.) as all other public schools. But we do undergo a thorough review every 6 years sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education.

Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School will have our 6-year Evaluation in 2016, when a team of six educators –most of whom work at governor’s schools themselves – will visit our school, observe, interview stakeholders, and review documents. We look forward to hosting the team in February and hearing their assessment of our strengths and challenges.


Letter from the Director on Possible State Funding Increase

I wanted to let you know that there is information circulating statewide about possible increased funding for all of Virginia’s governor’s schools. Governor’s school directors have met and most certainly hope for this line item to increase, as outdated funding for our schools limits what we are able to do, at times.
