Last year, a small team of passionate educators got together to talk about writing, writing development, and writing professional learning in ACPS, and after months of conversations, the Albemarle County Writing Collaborative (ACWC) was born! We had a successful first year. Members of the Cohort #1 community are now planning the Year 2 experience for you!
Cohort #2 will be made up of 15 educators teaching in middle and high school classrooms across our division. The design team is encouraging both English and content area teachers to apply by Tuesday, April 23, 2019. Open the 2019-2020 application »

As second semester gets underway, professional opportunities have been updated on the ACPS Professional Development site.

ACPS teachers, office associates, and other support staff engage in a high volume of email correspondence with families, colleagues, and school administrators. Currently, ACPS employees have access to 250MB of email storage through Outlook Exchange, the email application provided by Albemarle County Public Schools. In an effort to further support teachers and all employees, the Department of Learning Engineering, Accessibility and Design (LEAD) will adjust the storage limit of all email accounts to 2G. Doing so will expand email storage by 800%. This change will take effect on February 1.

As a continuation of our interpretation/translation training series, the ESOL Office is hosting Interpretation “Refresher” (Level 2 Training) sessions for interpreters. Being an interpreter involves a level of responsibility beyond language proficiency, and there are best practices and a code of ethics that will be reviewed and discussed during this training.
