CPS Facilities and Attendance Zone Master Plan
The City of Chesapeake and Chesapeake Public Schools are embarking on a long-term planning effort. The Facilities Master Plan (FMP) and Attendance Zone Study will look at major capital investments such as new construction and renovations of current school facilities. It will also involve an analysis of attendance zones to identify opportunities to maximize current school facilities.
A Steering Committee made up of teachers and administrators, parents, students, city staff, higher education representatives, business leaders, and other community members has been created to represent community voices at key steps of the planning process.Online surveys will be available with every meeting to allow citizens unable to attend to provide input.
Community Dialogue Meetings
Community input is a vital part of creating the FTP. Community Dialogue Meetings will be held at various points throughout the process so that you can receive updates and submit comments to make your voice heard. Each meeting will be held twice to allow for you to pick the time and location that is most convenient for you.
