Our Comprehensive Plan

The City of Chesapeake developed a comprehensive plan for services for its children and youth ages 0-22. The plan was created to align our city’s priorities for youth across city departments, schools, and the many community organizations focused on youth within our city. Our goal is to increase community collaboration to improve systems and programs for children and families.

Our areas of concentration are: Early Care and Education, Family Engagement, Out of School Time and Workplace Readiness.


Through this process of collaboration we strive to promote a system that families will hear throughout their child’s development:

  • R U Ready to be a parent?

  • R U Ready for the Birth of your child?

  • R U Ready for a toddler?

  • R U Ready for Kindergarten?

  • R U Ready for Middle School?

  • R U Ready for High School?

  • R U Ready for College and the workforce?

Our Chesapeake system should support our children and families as they make each important transition. Our children are our most valuable resource and by working together we can assist them by providing the resources needed for success.
