Introducing Chandra Hayes, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Chandra Hayes as Albemarle County Public Schools’ new Assistant Superintendent for Instruction! Dr. Hayes succeeds Debora Collins, who retired at the end of June.

As Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, Dr. Hayes will be responsible for collaboratively implementing all curriculum and instructional programs and practices; working directly with principals on staffing plans; teaming with the Office of Strategic Planning on the development of student performance assessments and goals; partnering with the Director of Professional Development to align division-wide professional learning offerings with the division’s instructional strategies; leading the division’s instructional coaching program; and supervising special education, student services, federal programs, and intervention supports.

Dr. Hayes shared, “It was clear to me from the moment I read the ACPS strategic plan and its mission statement that this school division understands the depth of commitment and partnership it will take to close achievement gaps and to bring to life its convictions that every student can learn at a high level and that every student can succeed in school, in their careers, and as family and community leaders.”
