Welcome to Richmond County Schools!


We believe that every student should have an opportunity to realize his/her optimum potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically. Every child can learn and we can teach every child. Every child is unique and can make a valuable contribution to society. Given knowledge and opportunity, students can shape their own futures.


The mission of Richmond County Public Schools is to collaborate with parents and the community to provide a healthy environment in which children can develop academically, socially, physically and emotionally in order to become lifelong learners, independent thinkers and responsible citizens.

Composite Indices of Local Counties

The Local Composite Index (LCI) indicates the individual localities’ relative fiscal capacity among all Virginia cities and counties to pay for educational services to children. Higher LCI values are indicative of greater fiscal capacity, while lower values signify a relatively more modest ability to pay for education. The LCI is further impacted by the general capacities of the Commonwealth to meet its funding obligations to localities. Therefore, the LCI is not only reflective of the economic health of a locality, but also the Commonwealth of Virginia.

As seen in the line graph, since 1996 the Richmond County Local Composite Index has seen very little variation when compared to other regional localities. This would reflect very predictable and stable local and state contributions for public education.
