Today, ACPS will be launching a process to redefine the high school experience for our future generations of Alexandria students. Before we look at the buildings, space and land acquisitions needed to resolve our capacity issues, we are asking our students, staff and community to think big and share their vision for the profile of a future Alexandrian graduate. If we do this right, this has the chance to impact our city.
While no school district can be completely immune from acts of violence, we would like to reassure you that ACPS is actively working on a daily basis to ensure our schools are as safe as they possibly can be.
T.C. Williams High School celebrated the graduation of 720 students on Saturday, one of the largest cohorts for a June graduation in the school’s recent history.
This fall, 354 students from T.C. Williams will be heading off to college, several of whom will be going to some of the top colleges in the United States. We wish them all the best.
Superintendent Alvin L. Crawley has announced that he will be leaving Alexandria City Public Schools this summer to take a position as a professor in the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University in the fall.
Dr. Crawley’s last day with ACPS will be July 28. The Alexandria City School Board will lay out the process for the search for a new superintendent within the next few weeks.
Superintendent Alvin L. Crawley has appointed Peter Balas as the new Principal of T.C. Williams High School, citing proven strong leadership skills and academic experience as the reason for the choice. Balas has spent the last 15 years of his career with ACPS, including five years as an administrator at T.C. Williams.
ACPS is eligible to receive additional federal funds, called Impact Aid, by identifying enrolled students with federal or military connections. We need your help in collecting this information.
