Recap the 2015-16 School Year in Video

As you head into the summer, take a look back at some of the highlights of the ACPS year on video.

On November 6, 2015, ACPS launched the ACPS 2020 Strategic Plan. More than 2,000 people showed up to celebrate our plans for a high-performing school division.

In February, ACPS celebrated our former sportsmen by inducting into the Athletic Hall of Fame several athletes and three former coaches including coaches Herman Boone and Bill Yoast from the 1971 winning football team memorialized in the Disney movie, ‘Remember the Titans’.

In early spring, Mount Vernon Community School planted tress outside their school with the mayor as part of Project Plant It.

In May, Francis C. Hammond Middle School became the first secondary school in ACPS to adopt the Breakfast in Classroom program.

T.C. Williams celebrated its 50th anniversary. In its special year, T.C. welcomed two major speakers: Civil Rights pioneer John Lewis and anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall.

In May, ACPS launched a campaign to #TellCouncil to fund ACPS and the new pre-K center. Many ACPS families and members of the community came out to speak on our behalf. We would like to thank City Council for their support this year in the budget process.

In June, 667 students from T.C. Williams High School Class of 2016 graduated in a ceremony where the commencement speech was given by U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King, Jr.
