The High School Project

This week, the project team from The High School Project: Inspiring a Future for Alexandria presented to the School Board their recommendation for an educational vision based on findings from community, staff and student listening sessions over the past four months.

The School Board will now review the feedback, alongside research on future trends and business needs, before making a decision on the direction of high school planning on December 6. The School Board will be asked to vote on the educational vision, a model by which to successfully implement the vision, and commitment to develop curriculum, operations and practices to accommodate this vision.

Looking for Updates on Facilities Projects?

Do you want to know exactly where you can find facilities updates for your school or an ACPS facility? ACPS has always listed facilities projects on the homepage of the website, but they are now also available on school websites. Now all facilities projects at a particular school or site can be found on the homepage of that school website. If that project is also part of the ACPS modernization/Capital Improvement program, a link to those projects can, of course, still be found in the Up-to-Date with ACPS section of the ACPS homepage.

Fall Membership Report: It’s All About the Numbers

Each fall, ACPS is required to report the membership (enrollment) numbers submitted to the Commonwealth of Virginia through the Fall Student Record Collection. In addition, ACPS is required to provide a breakdown of these numbers both by Virginia statute and ACPS School Board request.
