LCPS releases annual back-to-school music video
LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- School is just around the corner and Louisa County Public Schools is continuing an annual tradition.
The division released its back-to-school video on Tuesday, featuring Superintendent Doug Straley and parodies of popular songs.
"For the video, it's fun; it's motivational. It's a great time for us to reconnect with our families; reconnect with our staff,” he said. “Certainly, there's not a whole lot of practice that goes into it. It's just a fun time to get together and see what we come up with and then put the product out there and say, 'Hey team, let's roll.'"
The academic year gets underway on Aug. 9 in Louisa County.
While neighboring counties have been struggling with staffing issues, LCPS officials say the division is fully staffed with teachers and bus drivers.
Straley says a big theme this year is hitting the reset button.
"We talk about resetting,” he said. “It's resetting our mindset. We've been in somewhat of survival mode the past two years, and now it's time to come out of that and really look to revolutionize education."
