HCPS Parent Resource Center

The Hopewell City Schools Parent Resource Center promotes a cooperative partnership between parents, educators, and the community to help parents become active participants in the development of their child’s educational program.


All parents of school-aged children and youth with disabilities who receive special education services in Virginia are encouraged to complete the Virginia Department of Education's annual Parent Involvement Survey. To complete the service click here. The survey will remain open through December 16, 2022.
For support to thrive at home, school and work during this time.
