August 11 - First Day of School for Students for the 2014-2015 School Year
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Welcome to Appomattox County Public Schools' web page. Appomattox County Public Schools is located in central Virginia. We offer educational services to more than 2,230 students enrolled in preschool through adult classes in one high school, one middle school, one elementary school, and one primary school. Alternative middle and high school programs, gifted programs, and programs for students with special needs are also available. The public school system of Appomattox County is dedicated to excellence in education and strives to ensure that all children of school age receive the highest quality education appropriate to their individual needs and abilities.
Our theme for this year is Achieving Creative Prepared Students. We continue to strengthen our professional learning communities in each of our schools. Our vision is to equip our 2,230 students with the critical thinking skills needed for today and for their future. As we increase student achievement through the Standards of Learning (SOLs), we must also train our children to be inquisitive as they access and analyze information. ACPS aims to provide a high quality of education for every child, filled with a wide range of academic options, as well as many extra-curricular and athletic opportunities.
We are trying something a bit different this year with registration to offer more flexibility to parents. Schools will mail out to parents the week of July 21 their child’s teacher’s name(s) and some registration forms/school forms to complete. Parents are encouraged to complete and bring in the completed forms and schools fees to the school offices any day Monday through Friday, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. prior to August 4. We hope this will shorten wait times to pay fees on what used to be called registration day. This will now be called Open House and will be a time for parents and students to meet teachers. Parents may still wait and pay fees during Open House if they choose to do so on August 7 from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at each of the schools. Students may have additional school forms for parents to complete once school begins. School registration forms may also be found on our division website.
Students who are new to ACPS for 2014-15 may register at the schools on Wednesdays from 8:30am-3:30pm. Please call the school office ahead of time to see what documents you need to bring.
In addition to the Hotline, students and faculty can now text their concerns to (434) 609-7146. This is a texting only phone and will be checked daily. If you do not have access to a phone you can use our on-line system to send text message alerts.
