Henrico County Schools change policy

Posted by Iva Radman – email

HENRICO COUNTY, VA (WWBT)--Henrico County Schools is 'changing' its admission policy for the Maggie Walker Governor's School--again.

Dozens of parents voiced their opposition to a change in how students are chosen for the program.

Now the school system says for next year it will go back to taking the students with the top composite scores.

For the next year though, it will go to a new policy, taking one student from each of the middle schools and the others as the top scorers countywide.
