Albemarle County Public Schools has a number of policies that govern our operations in alignment with state code and our division vision, mission and values. Our policies must be reviewed once every five years, though we often review them more frequently due to changes in Virginia Code or the needs of our school system. As part of the review process, we use our Equity Checklist to ensure that our policies are having a positive impact on equity in the school division. So far in 2022, we have updated, revised or deleted 52 policies.
In May, only one policy was updated, Policy IGBB, Services for Gifted Students. Language about our talent development model was added and other changes after an equity review.
We will continue to provide monthly policy updates. For any questions related to policies, email Jamie Gellner, Division Program Evaluator.
