Important Health Reminder:

As a health reminder, the flu is widespread in the state of Virginia at this time and local hospitals are full due to people suffering with the flu. We are trying to contain the flu in our schools and community, so please continue to encourage good hand washing with your children. Also, if your child is sick, please keep them home from school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medication. Those symptoms include but are not limited to fever greater that 100 degrees, vomiting, diarrhea, persistent cough, severe sore throat, pink eye, or a new rash that has not been confirmed by a doctor to not be contagious. It is our goal to keep your children healthy and safe while they are in our care, so please help us by keeping your children home if they are sick.

Statement of Amelia County School Board

There has been some misinformation circulating in the community regarding the finances of the school system. The Amelia County School Board received an annual lump sum appropriation from the Board of Supervisors for the current fiscal year. The School Board has not overspent that appropriation, nor do we anticipate overspending that appropriation. We have made some spending cuts recently in response to concerns raised by County staff regarding cash flow, but there has been no over expenditure of the School Board’s appropriation. The School Board and Dr. McKinley look forward to continuing to work with the County to provide a high quality education to the students of Amelia County.

Dr. McKinley's Letter to Parents and Community


Amelia County Public Schools are Fully Accredited!

It is with great excitement and appreciation that I announce that Amelia County Public Schools are fully accredited! The Virginia Department of Education announced the statewide results today, September 13, 2017,  and I am sharing the link below:
This is the first time all Amelia schools have been accredited since 2012-2013. ACPS is one of two divisions, among twelve total, in Region VIII to achieve this status.
I would like to publicly thank the students, teachers, staff, parents, and community for our collective success. I appreciate all that takes place each day for the success of our children. During the past three years we have worked to align curriculum, increase student engagement, expand technology literacy, and build positive relationships with students. Keep up the great work!

- Superintendent, Jack McKinley

Coffee, Cookies, and Conversation with Superintendent, Dr. Jack McKinley  

Coffee Cup A message from Superintendent, Jack McKinley:
I want to remind our school community that on the first Thursday of every month I hold an open house meet and greet session at the James Hamner library from 7 PM to 8 PM called Coffee, Cookies, and Conversation. This is an open house style meeting and is open to any members of our community. During this time, I like to ask visitors the following questions, “What are we doing well in our schools?” and “What can we do to improve?”. Feel free to stop by the James Hamner library on any first Thursday of the month. We are always looking for ways to improve our school system. We are doing great things and we look forward to even more.
