PTO Message

February Parent Council Meeting

The ACPS Parent Council holds monthly meetings where representatives from each school have an opportunity to share ideas, express concerns, and hear updates from ACPS leadership.  During this month’s meeting, the major topics of discussion were the changes made to the Virginia Standards of Accreditation, High School 2020, and Freshman Seminar, a new class required for all freshman beginning 2018-19. It was noted that Albemarle County will be taking a $1.9 million reduction in state funding due to the composite index.  This is the biggest reduction of all VA school systems.  If you would like to find out more about these topics, please visit:  https://www.acpsparentcouncil.org/meeting-minutes/february-meeting.

If you have information to be included in our weekly Hornet Happenings, please remember to email us at hollymeadptocommunications@gmail.com by the Monday before our Wednesday distribution.
