APS News Release

Sept. 27 Engage Updates: Elementary Boundary Process Questionnaire: Update on Strategic Plan Performance Objectives.

New Information & Community Questionnaire on the Elementary School Boundary Process
In follow-up to the Sept. 26 “Getting Started” Community Meeting, staff published proposed new boundaries for Abingdon, Barcroft, Drew, Fleet (Henry), Hoffman-Boston, Long Branch, Oakridge, and Randolph. Final boundaries are scheduled for adoption by the School Board on December 6, which will take effect September 2019 when Fleet opens and Drew becomes a full neighborhood school as the Montessori program moves to Henry.

Community members can participate in this process in several ways, including:

  • Online Community Questionnaire: Provide your input online in English or Spanish using the questionnaire available through Oct. 9 at apsva.us/elementary-school-boundary-change/
  • Staff Open Office Hours: Bring your questions for staff to answer from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at Kenmore Middle School (200 S. Carlin Springs Rd.).
  • Via Email: Send questions or comments about the proposed boundaries to staff by writing to engage@apsva.us.

Community input will be shared online, at the Oct. 10 School Board Work Session and the Oct. 17 “What We’ve Heard” Community Meeting on the Fall 2018 Elementary School Boundary Process.
