The Chesterfield County Public Schools Board approved an expansion of its gifted child program last week and a change order related to construction at a new Beulah Elementary School.

The school district plans to expand its gifted child program to Carver Middle School for the 2019-20 school year that would include students from Carver and Elizabeth Davis middle schools.

The district currently has a gifted child program at four middle schools (Matoaca, Manchester, Midlothian and Robious) with plans to expand to Swift Creek Middle School this fall.

In other action, the board approved a change order for $304,000 to cover subsurface soil conditions encountered during the construction of off-site road improvements at the new Beulah campus, 5441 Beulah Road. Kensbridge Construction was awarded a $24.3 million contract to build the school April 19, 2017. The school is slated to open this fall.

Also last year, the school board approved a $21.1 million contract to Southwood Builders to construct a new Enon Elementary School. That school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019 at 2001 E. Hundred Road.
