School Board to Receive Budget, Discuss High School Project at Upcoming Meeting

The superintendent’s leadership reorganization, the fiscal year 2021 combined funds budget — as well as the reelection of the Alexandria School Board Chair and Vice Chair — are just a few of the items on the docket for Thursday, Jan. 9.

The ACPS budget process began in September and will conclude in May in coordination with the passage of the City budget. Additionally, the 2021-2030 Capital Improvement Budget was approved in November, and the Combined Funds budget priorities include:

  • Increasing engagement to Hispanic communities to improve graduation and chronic absenteeism
  • Outreach to Underserved Communities to Increase Engagement
  • Improve staff retention
  • Cultural competency training for all ACPS staff
  • Improving customer relationship services and management
  • The implementation of a facilities audit

Board Chair Cindy Anderson and Vice Chair Veronica Nolan are uncontested for one-year appointments.

Superintendent Dr. Gregory Hutchings will unveil a new organizational structure for ACPS staff. As part of the new structure, Hutchings has proposed a chief of staff role to manage ACPS departments.

The board will also receive an update on the T.C. Williams High School Project. The board voted 6-3 in the fall to keep Alexandria with one public high school for the foreseeable future. As part of the plan, the Minnie Howard (3801 W. Braddock Road) site, which is a satellite school a few blocks west of T.C., will be expanded.
