The next SLEP Advisory Group meeting will be held on Monday, November 14, 2022 at the ACHS-King Street Campus Library meeting time is from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the meeting is open for the public to attend.
Starting Mon., Sept. 12, 2022, ACPS will be asking for you to share your voice, via a survey, on this important topic. Results from this survey effort will be used to directly inform the SLEP Advisory Group in their upcoming December 2022 recommendations to the School Board regarding a reimagined partnership between ACPS and the APD. Additionally, survey respondents will be able to opt-in to upcoming focus group discussions as it relates to school and division safety and security. The online survey will be shared online via the ACPS website and launches on Mon., Sept. 12, 2022, and closes on Sun., Oct. 9, 2022. The survey will be available in English, Spanish, Amharic and Arabic and should take about 15 minutes to complete. We look forward to hearing from you on this important topic!
We are proposing the creation of a SLEP Advisory Group to increase internal and external stakeholder involvement with the ACPS and Alexandria Police Department partnership. It is important to note that while the advisory group will assist in the continued development and refinement of the partnership as well as establish recommendations to the School Board, the advisory group will not have final decision making authority in regards to program operations or administration.
SLEP Advisory Group Mission
The mission of the SLEP advisory group is to assist ACPS leadership, the Superintendent and the School Board in reimagining the school law enforcement partnership with the Alexandria Police Department in order to ensure a positive, safe and equitable school experience for all students.
