Alexandria residents are being invited to weigh in Tuesday (August 10) on the design for the Alexandria City High School Minnie Howard campus.
The community will be provided a design update at 6 p.m. in a Zoom meeting with staff from the ACPS Office of Capital Programs, Planning and Design. The recently approved competition-sized swimming pool will also be discussed.
“We encourage you to read more about the history of the High School Project (PDF), and we look forward to hearing from you on August 10,” ACPS wrote to parents.
The School Board unanimously approved the $150 million “pinwheel” concept for Minnie Howard in April. A recent ACPS survey found that 77% of respondents like the pinwheel, a decision that took years in the making.
Minnie Howard will continue as a satellite campus for Alexandria City High School, and will accommodate 1,600 students in a new five-story facility. Construction is planned to start on open space on the property next June and wrap up in September 2024. During that time, physical activities and parking will need to be held off-site.
The meeting will include Spanish, Amharic and Arabic interpreters. The Superintendent’s Advisory Team will discuss the comments and recommendations on Wednesday, August 11, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
