Discussion was held on the topics of current enrollment and current staffing. Discussion of a search of the central registry for Staff #3. An error was made with regards of a request being returned. The registry asked for the center (by phone) to mail back this request. An e-mail was sent to the center from the registry confirming that a search conducted on the date of inspection was "clear" for Staff #3.

The following inspection took place between the hours of 9:30 am through 1 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of the Chesterbrook Academy #822 located in Fair Lakes, Virginia.
