My students go to Randolph Elementary. Why should I support this referendum?

All county residents benefit from Goochland having an excellent school system. The new Goochland Elementary School will be a centralized location for division-wide elementary school activities and is being built to accommodate the increased student enrollment in Goochland since all elementary schools are at capacity. Redistricting will occur so that temporary trailers and overcrowded classrooms at Byrd and Randolph can be relieved. Therefore, some families in the Byrd and Randolph school districts may be placed in the Goochland school district.


Byrd and Randolph students will also benefit from the projects being funded at the Middle and High school, including safety improvements to Bulldog Way and the parking lots, and the additional facilities and modernizations planned for the Middle and High schools.
