The Amelia County School Board does not and cannot comment on personnel matters.  That said, we carefully weigh each decision and none are made in haste.  

ACPS Instructional Plan and Options for the Upcoming 2021-2022 School Year

On Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Dr. Harper, Division Superintendent, hosted a Town Hall Meeting in which she shared with the Amelia Schools community the two instructional options for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. Amelia County Public Schools will offer both in-person instruction five (5) days per week as well as fully remote/virtual instruction provided through Virtual Virginia. Parents must complete an application form which indicates their preferences for instruction and transportation for the 2021-2022 school year. Application forms have been mailed to the parents of each individual student during the week of March 29-April 2, 2021. Completed forms should be returned to the School Board office by Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Please contact Dr. Cynthia Reasoner, Director of Instruction, at reasonerc@ameliaschools.com or (804) 561-2621 if you have questions or desire additional information. Thank you for your continued support of Amelia County Public Schools.

Approved 2021-2022 ACPS Calendars>

On Monday, January 11, 2021 the Amelia County School Board approved the instructional calendars and approved work days/pay dates for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.  We will inform our Amelia County school community as soon as possible with regards to exactly which calendar Amelia County Public Schools will utilize for the 2021-2022 school year.  This decision will be made once we receive firm guidance from the Virginia Department of Education and the Piedmont Health District regarding social distancing requirements related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Certainly, it is our hope that Amelia County Public Schools will begin the 2021-2022 school year with the "regular" instructional calendar.
Highlights of the "regular" instructional calendar include the following:
  • 180 day instructional calendar which ends for students and 10 month employees prior to the Memorial Day holiday
  • Provides for a two-week Winter Break
  • Aligns Spring Break with surrounding central Virginia/ Richmond area school divisions
  • Provides a student/staff holiday on Easter Monday
  • Provides either a full teacher work day or 1/2 teacher work day at the end of the 1st and 3rd marking periods (to provide teachers with work time related to end of quarter grades and report cards)
  • Provides for (1) day for parent/teacher conferences on November 1st from 12:00-7:00 P.M., followed by a Teacher Professional Development day on November 2nd    
  • Provides for a teacher work day (student holiday) the day after an evening of parent/teacher conferences

Thank you for your continued support of Amelia County Public Schools and #TeamAmelia!

Superintendent's Message to the Community

Dear Members of the ACPS Community,

We are rapidly approaching the end of the 2020-2021 school year. Students, parents, and ACPS staff will likely remember this year forever. Our staff bravely started this year teaching students in-person and virtually during a time when many other school divisions offered only virtual instruction. It has been a time of change for our community. We are thankful for all members of Amelia County Public Schools and their dedication exhibited this year.

As we complete the final tasks of the school year, we extend congratulations to our graduating seniors. We know you will proudly represent Amelia and always be a Raider at heart.

During the summer months we will be preparing for students to return to school full time, five days per week. We are hopeful that state restrictions will ease as we move into the next school year. The new year will also bring a renewed focus on enhancing what we do in Amelia County Public Schools. Our strategic planning team of students, parents, staff, and community members will navigate the strategic planning process and develop an action plan to move ACPS toward future goals. Please share your thoughts with the team as we face this important task.

Thank you for taking the time to view our web page. We appreciate your support of Team Amelia!

Sincerely,
Lori Harper, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Amelia County Public Schools
