Engage with Us!

Engage with APSIn schools and classrooms, and with the help of our advisory committees, families and neighbors, APS is partnering with our entire community to create the best learning experiences for our students. Shaping the future for our children — now more than ever — requires a continuous, collaborative and coordinated effort from across our community.


CURRENT INITIATIVES:

  • K-12 Instructional Vision

    • Student enrollment continues to grow, and APS is working to implement complex and overlapping development initiatives outlined in the 3-5 Year Action Plan. The DRAFT proposal for K-12 Instructional Alignment:
      • is designed to kick off a community discussion as we shape a long term plan for providing school options,
      • Does not specify a timeline for adoption, but instead will be shaped by community input and implemented over time, and
      • complements two decisions that the School Board will vote on in June.

  • New High School

    • By September 2022, APS will open the doors to a new high school. Beginning in February 2017, we will launch a community engagement process to determine the instructional focus for the new high school.

  • Enrollment & Transfer Policy Revisions

    • At the School Board’s direction, APS is beginning the process of updating SB Policy 25-2.2, Enrollment and Transfers for Schools and Programs. The policy was last completely reviewed and revised in 2001-02.The goal of this review and revision process is three-fold:
      • To make it easier for families to understand the school options available and processes to apply;
      • To align the structure of the policy and procedures with best practices; and
      • To allow for flexibility in making adjustments in the future as we continue to address capacity.
