Teachers and other licensed positions who were reappointed by the school board on May 25 will receive their contracts in ADP by end-of-day on Thursday, June 1. This year, we will send all licensed contracts through ADP on a rolling basis between May 26 and June 1. These contracts are due to be electronically signed by Friday, June 9. Human Resources (HR) recommends checking your ADP account at the end of each day until your contract hits your account.
Staff calendars for the 2023-24 school year are now published on the Time and Attendance Documentation web page (under “Employees” or “Timekeepers”). Please use the published work calendars for guidance on your schedule rather than what you see on your future timecard, as timecards do not always show holidays and non-workdays until the actual work week.

Throughout the spring semester, the Employee Voice and Action Committee (EVAAC) has been evaluating several issues related to working conditions for ACPS employees. At this point, we would like to share an update on our work pertaining to personal leave, which is earned by 10- and 11-month employees. (This should not be confused with annual leave, which is earned by 12-month employees.) In addition to sharing this update, we are asking 10- and 11-month employees for input to guide our next steps.

Completing the survey, which only takes about 5 minutes, will help us create a more supportive working environment for all ACPS employees. Please help us reach our goal of 100% participation!

As we shared in a March 2 news release, Deputy Superintendent Debora Collins has announced her retirement, effective June 30, 2023. We hope you will join us in thanking Ms. Collins for her four decades of outstanding service as a teacher and leader for Albemarle students, staff and families!
To fill the vacancy left by Ms. Collins’ retirement, the school division is looking to hire a new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. We will conduct a nationwide search led by leading national search firm McPherson & Jacobson. The hiring process will include seeking stakeholder input from a variety of sources, and there are two ways in which you can participate:
First, on Wednesday, March 15, we will engage in a series of 45-minute stakeholder input sessions, during which we hope to hear from students, teachers, Department of Instruction staff, school leaders, parents/guardians, and community partners related to the qualities they prioritize for the next Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. If you would like to participate in one of these focus groups, please complete this form by 5 p.m. on March 13.Continue reading →
