  • A Message from the Chairman to Ward 4 Citizens

    Attention 4 Ward Citizens:

     

    The Petersburg City School Board will accept letters of interest from qualified voters from Ward 4 who wish to be considered for appointment to the vacancy on the board.  Letters of interest should be submitted via email to Jeanette Berrios, Board Clerk at jeberrios@petersburg.k12.va.us.  The deadline for submitting letters of interest is April 13, 2020.  Letters of interest should include all pertinent information that the applicant would like the board members to consider.  Given the current pandemic, personal interviews will not be conducted. The School Board will consider the letters and make a decision at its meeting on April 15, 2020.
