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.
We hope you'll find the information and resources provided useful for your child, regardless of the disability label, on their journey from high school to adult life.
