Vision, Integrity & Passion (VIP) Awards
Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) launched the VIP Awards Program in October 2021 as a way to honor outstanding employees who work every day to make a difference in our school division. Throughout the year, ACPS highlights employees among four categories as a way to honor those who stand out for their dedication and achievement. This initiative operates in conjunction with the annual ACPS Teacher of the Year and Principal of the Year awards to ensure a comprehensive employee recognition program.
