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

Superintendent's Message to the Community

Dear Parents, Students, and Amelia Community;

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  This year will certainly be a year unlike any other.  Although it will be the first year we are unable to greet all of our students at our doors on the first day of school, we are excited to be reopening after five months.  We know that our schools and practices will look different, but our Amelia County Public Schools (ACPS) staff continue to be the best in Virginia. Together we are Team Amelia!

Navigating the new school year will provide opportunities for Amelia families and staff to demonstrate the cohesiveness that is Amelia County.  Regardless of the educational path of engagement for each child, every student is a valued member of ACPS.  Our ACPS staff are dedicated to providing equitable instructional programming for each student.  I encourage parents to connect weekly with teachers to meet individual student goals.  Teamwork is essential.

During the week of August 10, 2020, ACPS will be distributing Chromebooks for all students.  On August 10, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. we welcome families to our first virtual Open House.  Each school will share information about this special event.

We welcome students back to ACPS and we look forward to partnering with you during the upcoming school year.


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