Alexandria City Public Schools wants community input on interim superintendent selection

Alexandria City Public Schools want input from the community on the “intensive search” for an interim superintendent.

Superintendent Gregory Hutchings, Jr.’s resignation goes into effect at the end of August, and the interim superintendent will be chosen by July 28.

“As a result, the School Board and the ACPS community will be engaging in an intensive search for a new superintendent to lead our school system,” ACPS said. “We will move forward at the pace necessary for conducting a thorough and thoughtful process leading to the appointment of a new superintendent to guide our school division to continued success and sustain our positive culture of learning.”

Community members are asked to use the School Board Contact Form for submissions.

“Your feedback will be encouraged and considered as an interim superintendent, who can support the transition throughout the new school year, is sought and as the search for Dr. Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr.’s permanent successor is conducted,” ACPS said.

Hutchings has been superintendent since 2017, and took over after a one-year stint by former interim Superintendent Lois Berlin, the former superintendent of Falls Church City Public Schools. Berlin left retirement to fill the office, which was vacated by former Superintendent Alvin Crawley.

ACPS released the following schedule:

  • July 7– Special Called Meeting- Public Announcement of interim supt. interviews, pursuant to Virginia Code 2.2-3712 (B)
  • July 8 – Applications for interim supt. position close
  • July 18-21 – Interim supt. interviews
  • July 22 – Board will extend offer to selected candidate
  • July 28 – Interim supt. selection approval and ratification of contract
