About the new School Websites

Dear Parents, Staff and Community,

Welcome to the new ACPS School Websites! Why the change you might ask? For our parents and guardians the plan is to make the school websites uniform and similar in layout. The thought behind this is if a parent has children in more than one school they can easily navigate across multiple sites when looking for the same information. It has been years since the launch of the old sites and it is time for a new look and feel.
