Alexandria City Public Schools requests extension for high school trailers amid school expansion

Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) has filed a special use permit to allow it to extend the use of trailers at Alexandria City High School to 2024.

The specific temporary trailers being discussed in the special use permit are those built specifically to accommodate students displaced by the Minnie Howard campus renovation.

The special use permit also notes that, technically, ACPS’s permit to use those trailers has already expired.

“The proposed change is an extension of the August 31, 2022 expiration of the temporary trailers at [Alexandria] City High School until the Minnie Howard campus renovation is complete for adequate space between the Minnie Howard and King Street campuses,” the special use permit said. “The requested extension is for August 31, 2024.”

The Minnie Howard campus expansion — part of a plan to expand capacity at Alexandria City High School — broke ground this March.

The project is scheduled to be completed for the 2024-2025 school year, so there’s a fair chance ACPS will be back for another extension before the expansion is finished.
