Back to School Forms/Documents to be Completed

As a friendly reminder, if you haven’t done so yet, complete all the necessary back to school forms for your AAHS child.

School Safety

We are working this summer to update our school emergency response plan. We have a strong relationship with area emergency response agencies to ensure our plan is up-to-date and thorough. On August 9th and 11th, active assailant training will be conducted at AAHS. This training will include local law enforcement, fire department and emergency responders. The training will be throughout both days on August 9th and 11th therefore, campus access will be restricted during the day. Training will be completed before the parent activities meeting scheduled for the evening of the 11th.

New Student Data Privacy Legislation

Alexandria Public Schools use a variety of digital tools to support student learning. Technology vendors and software is utilized to support work as we help all students develop the skills necessary to succeed in an ever-changing world.

We have an inventory of our curriculum, testing, and assessment tools posted here https://www.alexschools.org/Page/7401 and include an outline of the student data elements within each tool. This list is maintained and communicated annually to all families at the start of the school year.

Please reach out to our tech support team (tsupport@alexschools.org) for additional questions regarding specific digital tools used in classrooms.
