Charlottesville City Schools and the Community

Acclaimed as one of America’s Best Places to Live, the Charlottesville City School Division reflects the pleasures, and diversity of Charlottesville. The city enjoys a variety of educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities. Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s internationally acclaimed home on his “little mountain,” presides over the city and the University of Virginia, which he founded. Nearby is Piedmont Virginia Community College, which offers career services and programs of study to students throughout Central Virginia.

There are more than two dozen parks and an eclectic mix of distinctive neighborhoods in the City. A historic pedestrian mall is the center of downtown and is a destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Despite its broad appeal and metropolitan attractions, Charlottesville still has a small town feel when it comes to meeting others.

Charlottesville schools promote small class sizes and support one of the lowest average student to teacher ratios in the state, which encourages teachers to attend to the unique needs of each child. The schools are rich with talented and dedicated teachers and exceptional support services. The fine and performing arts programs are recognized as among the best in Virginia. The division’s enrichment and after-school opportunities are highly acclaimed and provide both remedial assistance and exposure to a variety of activities to challenge and broaden the overall student experience.

Charlottesville’s Quality of Life

General Benefits

We offer a generous and comprehensive benefits package to our employees, including competitive salary, group health insurance by Anthem, dental and vision care plans, life insurance and membership in the Virginia Retirement System.

Our flexible benefits plan, called FLEXCOMP, is designed to:

  • Provide programs/benefits that meet the needs of employees now and in the future and
  • Ensure that all employees have an opportunity to be covered by a health care program that will guard against serious financial loss due to illness.

The concept behind FLEXCOMP is to provide FLEX credit to each employee to use as he or she sees fit. In order to be eligible for FLEXCOMP, an employee must have health insurance under a group health insurance plan provided by the school division or be covered under another group insurance plan not provided by the school division.

Employees may use the employer-provided FLEXCOMP credit to purchase benefits from a list of programs that are sponsored by the division or they may receive FLEXCOMP Credits in cash payments as taxable income.
