School Board Mission Statement
The mission of the Richmond School Board is to provide our students with high quality educational experiences so that our public schools are the choice of all Richmonders; to ensure that parents, families, and the community-at-large are involved in the activities of students; to ensure that students:
- master the essential skills of reading, writing, mathematics, and reasoning
- grow creatively, culturally and physically in order to become life-long learners; and
- learn to appreciate cultural diversity, become responsible citizens, and lead productive lives
BoardDocs (Notices, Agenda, Videos, & Minutes)
Because our cloud-based solutions are so easy to use, our organization will operate more effectively from day one. BoardDocs' next-generation, paperless services allow organizations to significantly improve the way they create and manage board packets, access information and conduct meetings.
Video recordings of all regularly scheduled School Board meetings will be posted within 24-48 hours of each meeting. For video questions or assistance, please contact the Public Information Office by phone at (804) 780-7100 or by email.
