Join Us on Aug. 15 for Our Division-Wide Convocation

Welcome Banner

Dear Albemarle County Public Schools Employees,

We are excited to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year! On Tuesday, August 15, we will host a division-wide convocation in which all division employees will meet at Ting Pavilion on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall.

We will gather together as one team to celebrate the hard work each of you engage in every day to ensure that students are provided the best we have to offer. Each one of you impacts the work we do with our students, families, and members of the community. Our convocation is an opportunity to recognize all of the professionals who create an environment in which our students are seen, heard and known by those who support them! The relationships we build with our students matter!

We look forward to seeing you on August 15!
