Community Informational Sessions 

Exciting Mathematics Pathways


Families of children enrolled in public schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia and community members are invited to attend a series of informational sessions on the Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative (VMPI). VMPI is a joint initiative between the Virginia Department of Education, the State Council of Higher Education in Virginia, and the Virginia Community College System. The initiative seeks to redefine mathematics course options for students in the Commonwealth to ensure that the mathematics in which students are engaging is relevant to their postsecondary aspirations. 


The committee is hosting a series of informational sessions meant to talk about VMPI with Virginia families, students, and community members. These sessions will provide the opportunity to answer questions about the initiative.


Attached is an infographic that will also provide more information about the initiative. You can also access a video that will explain the basics of VMPI in about 25 minutes.  Additional details can be found on the VMPI website


All sessions will be live-streamed on the VDOE YouTube channel at:
