Open House & Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Join APS for an Open House & Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Thursday, May 3 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Syphax Education Center (2110 Washington Blvd.). This is an opportunity to explore the newly-expanded and centralized APS Administrative and School Board Offices and Meeting Room location. Guests will be able to take a self-guided tour to find out where each department is now located in the new building. Most of the offices will be moved by May 3. Although guests may find some boxes still needing to be unpacked and finishing touches to be added, this is a great opportunity to roam all four floors, find where APS staff and departments are now located, and to acquaint yourself with the new meeting room spaces now available for professional development and APS Advisory Committee meetings.
In addition, there will be a ribbon-cutting at 6 p.m. before the first Arlington School Board meeting at the new location. Guests are invited to gather with School Board Members and the APS Executive Leadership Team to make the building official by cutting the ribbon in the new School Board Meeting Room on the 2nd Floor. The School Board meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
