Educators across APS are working with colleagues and community input to develop a vision for Teaching and Learning that aligns with the 2018-24 Strategic Plan, defines the elements of APS options, supports access for all students, and guides decisions about our balance of options and neighborhood schools as APS grows to 34,000+ students.
The Department of Teaching and Learning is leading this process to develop the IPP framework that accomplishes the following:
- Aligns with the 2018-24 APS Strategic Plan and Profile of a Virginia Graduate
- Articulates multiple pathways for student success
- Defines how neighborhood schools and option programs fit within the APS pathway
- Defines the elements of an “option school”
- Ensures all families and students have access to information about APS schools and programs
- Defines a variety of entry points to APS instructional programs
- Provides for PreK-12 instructional articulation where appropriate
- Acknowledges that students respond to and develop in various ways at different rates, and may benefit from differing instructional models
Community members are invited to attend the IPP Community Open House on April 30 at Kenmore Middle School (202 S. Carlin Springs Rd.) from 7-9 p.m. to learn more about the various elements of this process to ensure multiple pathways are available for student success.
