Superintendent's Message to the Community

Dear Parents, Students, and Amelia Community;

We are having a great 2021-2022 school year. Our students and staff have been
working hard to overcome losses experienced during the past two years. We are so
excited to be able to attend school in a way that more closely resembles pre-
pandemic days.

ACPS has started the process of slowly adjusting our mitigation strategies so that
we will once again be able to have visitors in our schools. Persons interested in
volunteering in ACPS schools should contact our Human Resources department to
complete an application and background check.

Another exciting bit of news is that ACPS recently completed the strategic
planning process. This means that we now have a guiding document designed to
enhance our programming and move our school district into the future. This five-
year strategic plan will be reviewed regularly as we track our progress. Please take
a look at the plan. A link is posted on our website.

As we move into spring, we look forward to graduation on May 21st. Our students
have worked hard and we wish them much success in the future. Remember to
keep the Team Amelia pride as we complete our school year.

Lori Harper, Ed.D.
