Background: ACPS is moving forward in our efforts to realize the mission and vision established in the ACPS 2020 strategic plan, and to prepare every student to have the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century. We are guided by a commitment to achieving academic excellence, where every school is high performing and every student succeeds. The adoption of the Combined-Funds Budget is an annual commitment to programs and activities for Alexandria City Public Schools.

On Thursday, January 9, 2020, the Superintendent proposed the FY 2021 Combined-Funds Budget for School Board consideration. This was followed by a series of work sessions, public hearings and staff responses to School Board questions.

On February 4, School Board Members submitted their Add/Delete proposals. On February 10, Members will co-sponsor the Add/Deletes of other Board Members. On February 12, the first Add/Delete work session is scheduled where the Superintendent will present his recommended adjustments.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board reviews this information.
