Fluvanna County High School is Accepting Applications for the 2021 Paul W. Bragg Scholarship

Alexander Pellicane

Alexander Pellicane, Class of 2020 Bragg Scholarship Recipient

PRESS RELEASE – April 20, 2021

Fluvanna County High School is pleased to announce the availability of the Paul W. Bragg Scholarship Fund application. Established by Mr. Bragg’s will, and managed by the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, the scholarship is meant “to provide undergraduate college assistance based on both need and merit to graduates of Fluvanna County High School.” The Paul W. Bragg Scholarship Fund Advisory Committee was formed to develop the eligibility rules, to develop the number of scholarships to be awarded in a given year and the amounts, to develop the application and submission procedures including deadlines, and to develop a brochure to publicize this scholarship fund.

Paul W. Bragg was a life-long resident of Fluvanna County, Virginia. He was born in Fluvanna in 1916 and lived his entire life in the family home at 1710 Middle Ford Road, where he died at age 87 on October 9, 2003. Mr. Bragg was a hard-working farmer, and he saved and invested wisely during his long life. He bequeathed the bulk of his considerable estate to the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation and directed the Foundation to establish a scholarship fund to benefit young people graduating from Fluvanna County High School.

The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation and the Paul W. Bragg Scholarship Fund Advisory Committee are dedicated to carrying out Mr. Bragg’s wishes in perpetuity. The Foundation manages the Bragg Scholarship Fund as part of its permanent endowment and each year notifies the Committee as to how much income is available to provide for scholarships in that year. The Committee then selects recipients from among that year’s applicants. Since the first scholarship was awarded in 2006, there have been 197 recipients and over one million dollars in awards. These recipients have attended Vanderbilt, JMU, Lynchburg College, Mary Washington, PVCC, UVA, Virginia Tech, VCU, William and Mary, Longwood, Shenandoah, Tulane, Johnson and Wales, VMI, Liberty, University of Richmond, Amherst, West Virginia University, Randolph Macon, Radford, Utah State, and Christopher Newport.

This year $130,000 will be available in scholarship money to members of the Class of 2021. One $40,000 scholarship, four $10,000 scholarships, eight $5,000 scholarships, and five $2,000 scholarships will be announced at the awards night on June 15, 2021. Applications and scholarship requirements will be available in the Fluvanna County High School School Counseling Office and on their website – www.flucoschoolcounseling.weebly.com/scholarships. The deadline for receipt of completed application packets is Friday, May 14, 2021 at 4 p.m. The application and supplemental information should be sent to: Maureen Stonesifer, Fluvanna County High School, 1918 Thomas Jefferson Parkway, Palmyra, VA 22963.

PRESS RELEASE – February 5, 2021

In an effort to provide data to our school community, Fluvanna County Public Schools has launched a COVID-19 Dashboard.  This dashboard will reflect the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases recorded each week.  This data is also reported by site.  An additional data element is the number of staff and students who have been quarantined due to possible COVID-19 exposure.  A link to the dashboard may be found on the Fluvanna County Public School’s COVID-19 webpage at:  http://fluco.org/covid-19/

The information reported includes only staff and students who are actively working or learning in person.  COVID-19 data is confirmed by a positive test result and in consultation with the Blue Ridge Health District (BRHD).

We encourage our community to continue with the mitigation procedures (masks, 6ft social distancing, and 15 minute time frame) along with monitoring for symptoms based on the VDH Evaluating Symptoms or Exposure protocols.

In addition to this dashboard, Fluvanna County Public Schools is also working in conjunction with the BRHD to offer vaccinations to our staff.

Additional questions regarding Fluvanna County Public Schools’ mitigation strategies and COVID-19 data may be directed to Don Stribling, Executive Director for Human Resources, Operations, and Student Services at dstribling@apps.fluco.org.

Fluvanna County School Board Announces Superintendent Search

PRESS RELEASE – December 15, 2020

For Immediate Release

On December 9, 2020, Mr. Winkler, Superintendent, announced his retirement effective June 30, 2021, and at this time the Fluvanna County School Board announced they will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent. The Fluvanna County School Board has selected the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) to assist the Board with the superintendent search. The first step in this process is seeking input from the community regarding the qualifications and characteristics they would like to see in the next Superintendent.

The School Board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FluvannaCoSurvey and on the home page of the Division’s web site (www.fluco.org). Hard copies of the survey are available at the School Board Office (former Palmyra Elementary School) and each school location. Please return all hard copies to the Fluvanna County School Board Office to the attention of Brandi Critzer, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent and Clerk to the School Board.

In addition to the survey, the board will hold a public hearing:
January 13, 2021
6:30 p.m.
Fluvanna County School Board Office 14455 James Madison Highway Palmyra, VA 22963

“Hiring a new superintendent is the biggest task a school board will face and we want to make sure that the public has a voice in this process,” said School Board Chairman, Perrie Johnson “We hope that parents, staff and residents will take time to fill out the survey or attend the public hearing.”
