Clubs are a great way for students to get involved with their school and community.
Chesapeake Public Schools (CPS) has been humbled by the outpouring of support received since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018. Many parents and community members have contacted us to ask how they can help support our safety and security measures through monetary donations. In response, CPS has developed two ways you can help.
