HCPS logoEarlier today, School Board Chair Roger Bourassa submitted his resignation from the Hanover County School Board to Board of Supervisors Chair W. Canova Peterson citing personal reasons. Mr. Bourassa’s service on the School Board will end on December 31, 2019.

Mr. Bourassa has served on the School Board since 2014, representing the Mechanicsville District. His current term was set to expire on June 30, 2022. The Board of Supervisors will advertise a public hearing for the acceptance of nominations for the Mechanicsville District School Board seat in the coming weeks.

In addition to serving as the School Board Chair, Mr. Bourassa also currently serves in the following roles: CodeRVA Vice-Chair, Finance Committee, and Joint Education Committee. He previously served as the School Board Vice-Chair, as well as on the Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee, Special Education Advisory Committee, Head Start/Hanover Preschool Initiative Policy Council, and as a Virginia School Board Association Delegate.

“It has been my sincere honor to serve on the School Board, and I am grateful to Mr. Peterson and the Board of Supervisors for this opportunity. I have been fortunate to work collaboratively and strategically with my fellow board members on many positive and meaningful accomplishments during my tenure, and I will miss them. I will also miss Dr. Gill and his staff, who dedicate their hearts and souls to meeting the complex and ever-changing needs of our students. Under such strong leadership, I am confident that Hanover County Public Schools’ tradition of excellence will endure,” said Roger Bourassa, School Board Chair.

“Mr. Bourassa has served our students and community with honor and distinction. I have enjoyed working with Roger and could not have asked for a more dedicated appointee to represent our district on the School Board. I am grateful for his many contributions to ensure our school division remains a leader in education. While I will miss him, I understand and respect his decision. He will be difficult to replace,” said W. Canova Peterson, Board of Supervisors Chair.
