Monticello High School and Albemarle High School both have academies … time for WAHS to step up.
From Albemarle County Schools:
A faculty committee at Western Albemarle High School has been working this year to explore possibilities of academy models that might be a good fit for the school. The group has visited several schools with academies (specialty centers) and has researched many others. Full faculty discussion has taken place about various ideas. At this point, five areas of interest have tentatively been identified. The goal for this year is to narrow the focus to one model which will provide quality learning experiences that appeal to a broad segment of the student body. If this is accomplished then school year 2013-14 would be a planning year with the goal of implementation the following year. Input from stakeholders is vital to this process. For this purpose, we are asking you to read and complete this survey which includes brief descriptions for each area currently under consideration. This can hopefully be done as a joint effort between parents and their student(s).
The survey window will close at noon on Friday, March 29th.
