  More Seats for More Students: Next Steps
 
During the 2012-13 school year, the next steps in the “More Seats for More Students” planning process will include the design of the addition to Ashlawn Elementary School and the new elementary school at the Williamsburg site as well as consideration of associated boundary changes.
 
Community members are invited to participate in both processes.

Boundary & Admission Policy Changes
As new seats come online, boundaries and admissions policies will need to be adjusted. The first step in developing the community engagement process will be a School Board work session on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:45p.m.at the Education Center (1426 N. Quincy St), Room 101. At this meeting, the School Board will review the current boundary policy, discuss the scope of the boundary changes to be considered, and give direction to staff to ensure communication with and feedback from the community.

Information about the boundary planning process can be found on the “More Seats for More Students” webpage.

Questions about boundary planning can be directed to Dr. Alison Denton, Director of Facilities Planning at 703-228-7741 or via email at alison.denton@apsva.us.

Design Process for Addition and New Building
Starting this week, the Building Level Planning Committees (BLPC), made up of parents, teachers, civic association representatives, and APS & County staff, will begin developing schematic designs for the first two projects of the new CIP. The Ashlawn addition is scheduled for completion in 2014 and the new school at Williamsburg will open for the 2015-16 school year.

Information about the BLPC meetings and process can be found at the Ashlawn project page and the new elementary school project page.

Questions about the design and construction process may be directed to John Chadwick, Director of Design & Construction at 703-228-6609 or via email at john.chadwick@apsva.us.
