Long Range Educational Facilities Plan

Long Range
  • The City of Alexandria and ACPS are jointly developing a work program for a Long Range Educational Facilities Plan (LREFP) to improve facilities planning, accommodate the growing student population, and enhance educational programs and services.

    As part of the program, a work group was established and is comprised of members from the community, Alexandria City School Board, City Council, Campagna Center, and the PTA Council, supported by ACPS and City staff. The work group meets on a regular basis to explore the major issues that will impact public school facilities over the long term and to guide staff in the development of a draft Long Range Educational Facilities Plan for consideration by the School Board and City Council.

    For more information on the LREFP Work Group, please see Addendum II below. This is an addendum to the original Work Program established in 2012 which can be found on the City of Alexandria LREFP web page.

    Educational Specifications

    Through this process, ACPS and Alexandria City have jointly drawn up Educational Specifications (Ed Specs) to act as a blueprint for future school facilities.

    Joint City-ACPS Facilities Master Plan

    The City and Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) have been working together in a forward-thinking, collaborative process to develop a Joint City-ACPS Facilities Master Plan (JFMP). This plan will deliver a long-range, integrated, citywide blueprint for public facilities that benefits Alexandria residents.

    The community is invited to stay updated on the group's progress on the project website. All community members are welcometo view JFMP meetings live, and the recoredings of each meeting will be posted on the project website.
