April is Autism Awareness Month
The FCPS Autism Services and Support Team is hosting an event for our families of students with autism as April is Autism Awareness Month. The goal of this month is to accept and advocate for those on the spectrum, as well as to amplify autistic voices.
During this inaugural event, families and students will have the opportunity to seek academic, vocational, recreational, social, and therapeutic community resources for autism, while also getting the chance to network with one another. They say it takes a village to raise a child; we want to help our families of students with autism find theirs. To share with families, please follow this link.

Scheduled Route Cancellations & Delays
No route cancellations are planned for the month of April.
Students are expected to attend school, in person, unless they are officially enrolled in our virtual option program.
While it is our goal to provide a safety net and personalized alternative for teenagers who need a nontraditional and accelerated pathway to graduate, Success Academy may not always be the best option for some students. Therefore, it is sometimes necessary for students to explore other educational opportunities for obtaining their high school credentials.
Students who consistently fail to meet expectations after interventions have been implemented, may be subject to dismissal from the program. The following documents will be reviewed: Student Summary Report, Credit Summary Report, PLP log, Attendance, 60 and 90 day contracts, Odysseyware Course Percentage Completion Report, Odysseyware Daily Activity Report, Information for Alternative Options high School Credential, Withdrawal Form, and any additional pertinent information
Final Notice letters will be mailed this week to students who are no longer attending school or completing assignments in Odysseyware.
This letter serves as a final notice of a student's lack of progress and/ performance as a student enrolled with The Success Academy. Please be reminded students in good standing are expected to complete 20 hours of Odysseyware work each week and in-person school attendance. Due to lack of progress and performance, students were placed on a 90 day contract. Performance since being placed on the 90 day contract will be reviewed.
Due to the lack of progress and non-attendance students have been placed on our pending withdrawal list. After receiving the Final Notice letter, if we do not hear from the student or their parent/guardian and the student does not return to in person instruction immediately they will be withdrawn from the program. There are other programs that we feel would benefit the student's needs at this time and we would love to meet with you to discuss those other options. Please contact Mr. Sims by April 22, 2022 to schedule a time to discuss other educational opportunities.
