The Business and Education Roundtable is an event organized by the Goochland County Public Schools in cooperation with Goochland County’s Office of Economic Development and the Goochland Chamber of Commerce to provide dialog and information exchange between stakeholders here in Goochland County.
In the spring of 2017, we first convened to discuss workplace readiness and what was important in terms of skills Goochland graduates would need when they leave high school.
On Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at Goochland High School, we plan to host another event to continue the dialog between members of our education team and community business leaders. The focus of this meeting is to have some of our business leaders share with the group their initiatives with fellow leaders, teachers, and Goochland High School students.
To reserve a spot at this spring’s roundtable, please RSVP below.

Goochland County Public Schools is pleased to announce that four of its five schools have been recognized as Apple Distinguished Schools for 2017–2019 for its focus on deeper learning with its 1:1 computing program using iPad. This year, the division expanded its program to K-2 classrooms in elementary schools and students at Goochland High School now use MacBook Air. Students use these devices to help develop world ready skills such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.
The following books were compiled by staff at each school as part of the application process and tells a unique story about how each school is approaching 1:1 computing.
Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching, and the school environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
“We’re proud to bring cutting-edge, engaging experiences to students,” said Goochland’s superintendent, Jeremy Raley, Ed.D. “Using these devices, we’re preparing students for an uncertain future, but one we know will require technology savvy and critical thinking.”
This year, Byrd Elementary School, Goochland Elementary School, and Randolph Elementary School were awarded this designation, alongside Goochland Middle School. Goochland High School was not eligible to apply for this recognition because of the developing stage of its program.
