New Superintendent Connects with Community During Weekend Visit

Incoming Superintendent Dr. Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr. had a whirlwind weekend full of community connections during his visit. Watch as he shares about the weekend and why he is so very thrilled to becoming back to Alexandria and with ACPS.

Friday started with an early morning meet and greet with the Interim Superintendent’s Leadership team, followed by interviews with students from Theogony, T.C. William’s student newspaper, and local media. He joined Interim Superintendent Lois F. Berlin at a meeting of regional superintendents, which was followed by a chat with ACPS principals.

Another early start on Saturday led him to City Hall, where he had breakfast with City Council, the City Manager and Alexandria School Board members. Then it was off to George Washington Middle School where he engaged with dozens of parents, community members, staff and others in an extensive question and answer session. Next it was the ACPS 2020 Stakeholders followed by the PTA Council along with PTA representatives from each school.

We hope that you were able to spend some time with him at one of these events! If not, be sure to watch the video above to learn more about him and you’ll see why we are so excited that he’ll be coming full circle back to ACPS.
