Marcus J. Newsome, superintendent, Chesterfield County Schools
Dr. Newsome joined CCPS as superintendent in 2006. He proudly reports that forty-two schools have earned the Governors Award for Excellence in Education, Board of Educations VIP Excellence Award or Board of Educations VIP Competence to Excellence Award. Additionally, in 2010, the school division became the largest in Virginia to have all of its schools fully accredited for three consecutive years. Immediately prior to moving to Chesterfield County, Dr. Newsome served as superintendent of Newport News Public Schools. Previously he worked in Prince Georges County (Maryland) and in the District of Columbia Public Schools. The superintendent received a bachelors degree from Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina, and his masters degree in administration and supervision from Bowie State University, in Maryland. He has earned both a doctorate degree in educational leadership from Bowie State University and a doctorate in religious education from International Seminary in Plymouth, Florida. Dr. Newsome is married to a public school teacher and is the father of three children.
Chesterfield Superintendent Marcus J. Newsome said his administration decided about 5 a.m. that roads were safe to transport students to school.
That decision was made based on calculations by the school's transportation officials, conversations with other school officials in Richmond and Henrico and favorable weather forecasts, he said. About 6 a.m. the weather forecast changed to show that the region would only get "a little bit of a dusting of snow", he said. By 7:15 most students had been transported to the high schools and a couple of middle schools, he said. But then transportation officials communicated to him that "road conditions were steadily deteriorating." "The safety of staff and our students was the primary guidance in issuing the closing of schools," he said. The weather has been unpredictable, Newsome said. "We wish we could see into the future," he said. On the other hand, Dr. Newsome of CCPS, did not even have the decency to offer any explanation or apology for the errors, poor judgement, or lack of communication. I am not surprised, this is how he runs the district....full of erros, constand poor judgement, lack of communication, lack of consideration, and most of all, lack of compassion for families. With all the money that Newsome and his crew are making, they should have been able to pick up each child in their own cars using their tax funded car allowances.
