PreK-8 Analysis

From May 2024 to Aug. 2024, a pre-K-8 analysis and evaluation will be conducted at Jefferson-Houston PreK-8 School and Patrick Henry K-8 School  by an independent contractor. The purpose of the analysis and evaluation is to  determine if these programmatic models should be maintained and, if not, what are the human, programmatic, operational and fiscal implications of other models. Final recommendations will be shared with the Alexandria City School Board to determine whether or not the grade level configuration of these schools should be changed. 

ACPS previously conducted a grade-level configuration study in 2017, which gave a national perspective on pre-K-8 models. ACPS is now looking for a specific analysis of its pre-K-8 schools to determine if these programmatic models should be maintained and, if not, what are the human, programmatic, operational and fiscal implications of other models.

School and community members may submit questions about the process.
