Dr. McKinley's Letter to Parents and Community

From the Desk of the Superintendent:

    We have exciting updates for the high school. I am pleased to announce that on August 16, 2017, the School Board unanimously approved the recommendation for Mr. Lindell Taylor Palmer to serve as Interim High School Principal. 

   While conducting interviews for the position, Mrs. Parcilla Salley and I were in absolute agreement that Mr. Palmer’s leadership style, experience, and abilities were in direct alignment with the needs of the school, students, and staff. The high school has experienced continued success for many years and we are confident that they will continue to do so. 

   Mr. Palmer has extensive administrative experience at the elementary, middle, and most recently high school levels among various divisions within Southside Virginia. He is strong in instructional best practices, team building, and community engagement. 

   Mr. Palmer had the opportunity to tour the school and meet some of our students and staff today. He will officially begin on Monday, August 21, 2017. He looks forward to meeting the parents at school or during extra-curricular events.

   We wish Mr. Palmer, the ACHS staff, and our students all the best as we start another great year!

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.
