Asking questions and sharing feedback are signs of engaged families and staff and great schools! Many questions or issues involving a specific student can be resolved by contacting your child’s teacher, school support staff or the front office. Some concerns and questions are about division-wide policies or issues, and may be part of online Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). There are a variety of ways you can connect with ACPS to share your comments, get information or ask a question. 


To share a concern or comment with ACPS leadership or to ask a question about division-wide issues, community members can write to ask@acps.k12.va.us

“Ask ACPS” is part of a new system to make it easier for families to submit questions and comments and get a timely response. Please keep in mind that the ask@acps.k12.va.us email is not for school-specific questions or communications concerning your student. No confidential student information should be sent to this email address. Please continue to contact your child’s teacher or front office staff for issues related to a specific school and your student.
