News from External Affairs – Laura LoGerfo

At the end of March, APS held a meeting for school representatives to discuss what kind of choice schools would be attractive options for parents and students.  APS calls these options Instructional Programs Pathways (IPP).  The conversation ranged widely:  Do we want an arts-focused high school?  A STEAM-driven middle school?  Another immersion school?  Themes?  Grade-levels?  Many ideas were floated, many notes were taken, and now it’s your turn if you want to share your thoughts:
  • A draft IPP framework and an online community survey will be available from now until May 13 at www.apsva.us/prek-12-instructional-programs-pathway-ipp/
  • A drop-in open house focused on IPP options will be held from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on April 30 at Kenmore Middle School.
  • APS will continue to share information on the IPP via the weekly APS Ambassador updates, School Talk messages, and social media
