Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
School Division Representatives for the Regional Schools Contracting and Planning Committee
The Virginia Master Plan for Public Telecommunications specifies that each of the five public television regions will be represented by a Regional Schools Contracting and Planning Committee, known as the RSCPC. The RSCPCs are coordinated through the public television stations and are critical to providing local representation for the selection of instructional television programming and the allocation of telecommunications services to schools.
The membership of each RSCPC is made up of school division superintendents, or their designees, for each school division within that region. Participation by a school division is based upon the open-broadcast coverage area. A school division may choose to participate in more than one RSCPC if it falls within two or more coverage areas.
The State Superintendent of Public Instruction requests annually that each school division superintendent identify his or her RSCPC affiliation and the name of the individual representing the school division.
Contact information is listed below for the five
public television stations in
If you have any questions concerning the RSCPC process, you may call Linda Holt at the Department of Education, (804) 786-5149, or the director of educational services at the appropriate public television station.
