Our Superintendent Profile Survey is now open!
Poquoson City Public Schools is committed to partnering with you to provide all our students with the best possible education. To do that effectively, we need your input on our search for our next superintendent. That’s why we’re asking parents, staff, and students in grades 6-12 to take our Superintendent Profile Survey.
The survey asks for feedback on what qualities you value in a leader. It also asks about your opinions about vision and goals, management, instructional leadership, communication skills, and stakeholder engagement. Please take the survey and share your thoughts with us.
- Parents/Community: Please check your emails for an invitation and survey link or go to https://survey.k12insight.com/r/19-20SuptSearchSurvey. The survey is open through Feb. 26.
- Staff: Please check your emails for an invitation and survey link.
- Students: https://survey.k12insight.com/p/1920SuptProfileSurveySTUDENTS. Enter your student ID to participate.
Independent research and communications firm K12 Insight will administer the survey and compile the results, ensuring the confidentiality of participants. To learn more about the survey, please contact Lenna Reimers at 868-3054.

School Calendar Update
The school calendar for next school year (2020-2021) will include a post-Labor Day start to school so the calendar will be very similar to the current school year calendar. The 20-21 calendar will be brought to the School Board to approve this winter. School division staff will continue to work with representatives from all of the school divisions who send students to the New Horizons Regional Education Center (NHREC) to determine if a change to a pre-Labor Day school start should occur for the 2021-2022 school year. The results of the school divisions surveys are being used to inform the decision making process. PCPS had a good return rate on the survey that was provided to the school community. The results of the survey can be found online at this link https://www.poquoson.k12.va.us/Page/248. A decision about the 2021-2022 calendar will be made during the spring of this school year.

"Be kind to unkind people - they need it the most."
"You can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!" - Anne Frank
