Prince William County Public Schools


Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) is well-known for its system of school-based management, which places decision-making and accountability at the school level. A few examples of initiatives that bring recognition to our School Division are school specialty programs, an enhanced curriculum, teacher committees that guide the transition and implementation of the curriculum, a multicultural program, a health and wellness program, a state-of-the-art technology infrastructure, and pioneering use of instructional support teams that work with schools and teachers at the classroom level. Prince William is repeatedly asked by the Virginia Department of Education to share its innovative programs with other school divisions. PWCS led state efforts to develop the Standards of Learning (SOL) for science and was the first in Virginia to restructure its curriculum. In addition, the School Division was the first to develop its own performance tests. As a result, the state followed Prince William’s model for the SOL testing program.
