LCPS Boards Tour 2018
Posted on 12/05/2018

Louisa County Public Schools hosted the Louisa County School Board and the Louisa County Board of Supervisors for a tour of several of their campuses on Wednesday, December 5th.


Members began their day at Central Office and had the chance to hear from several students who are currently serving as interns as part of the school’s Career and Technical Education program.


Members then traveled to Thomas Jefferson Elementary School.  While there, board members were able to get a first-hand look at the school’s Teachers of Tomorrow program, Specialty SPED programs and more!


The Patriots also created amazing signs thanking members of both boards for working together to help benefit students. 


Members were then given a tour of Louisa County Middle School, where they checked out the school’s Aquaponics program, Student Technology Help Desk, 3-D printers, and more!


The tour ended at Louisa County High School. Board members received an in-depth look at the school’s Student Garden, Plasma Cutter, and more.


The tour ended with a meal prepared by students in LCHS CTE’S Culinary Arts Program!


The annual tour serves as a chance for members of both boards to see the success of LCPS programs in action!


“Education requires a team effort, and here in Louisa County we are fortunate to have two boards who are committed to working together to benefit our students,” LCPS Superintendent Doug Straley said. “It’s an honor to host the Louisa County School Board and the Louisa County Board of Supervisors because it allows them to experience firsthand what’s happening every day in our schools. We take a lot of pride in the quality of programs we offer to students of all ages, so tours like this help board members see the results of their policies and their support. These tours are a great way for us to not only show them our amazing students, staff, and programs, but also to say thank you to them for being a part of making it happen.”


“Today’s joint tour between the Board of Supervisors and the School Board was excellent, and County officials had the opportunity to see first-hand the benefits of Louisa’s first-class school system,” County Administrator Christian Goodwin said.  “The joint tour was also indicative of the positive, synergistic relationship between both Boards which further benefits our County.”


Thanks to everyone who attended and organized today’s event! Your teamwork helps our students succeed!
