Your Questions Answered by National Education Experts About the Future of Our Academic Programming

- Opportunities

ACPS is inviting you to come and hear from a panel of national experts about how we can change what we teach and they way we teach it to our high school students.

ACPS has invited a panel of six highly-rated educational experts to help us redefine the educational programming for T.C. Williams as part of the High School Project and is providing you an opportunity to ask them your questions.

Since its inception in the summer of 2018, the High School Project has been about much more than a building. It is also about changing the experience for our students by redesigning the education program. On Wednesday, January 8, ACPS is holding an event at 7 p.m. in the T.C. Williams High School auditorium with some of the greatest minds in the nation to talk about how we can transform our city’s only high school. The six experts we have invited have firsthand knowledge about the best ways to plan high school programs to support student engagement, raise achievement and prepare students beyond the 21st century.

As part of our effort to redesign the high school experience for our students, we want you to have an opportunity to ask questions of these experts. Please send in your questions by 5 p.m. on January 7.
