Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
School Division Representatives for the Public Television Regional Schools Contracting and Planning Committee
Each of the five public television regions is represented by a Regional Schools Contracting and Planning Committee (RSCPC). Each RSCPC helps select instructional television programming and allocate telecommunications services to schools.
RSCPC membership comprises superintendents, or their designees, for each school division. Participation is based upon the open-broadcast coverage area. School divisions that fall within two or more coverage areas may choose to participate in more than one RSCPC.
The Superintendent of Public Instruction requests annually that each division superintendent identify his or her RSCPC affiliations and the individual representing the division. Contact information is listed below for the five public television stations in Virginia. Please forward to the appropriate director of educational services the name, address, and telephone number of the person who will serve as the RSCPC representative for the 2008-09 school year.
For questions concerning the RSCPC process, please call Mark Saunders at the Department of Education, 804-786-0307, or the director of educational services at the appropriate public television station.
