The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) selected Albemarle County Public Schools to participate with twelve public school divisions and act as fiscal agent for the Professional Partnership for School Leadership Preparation Grant. The other twelve participating school divisions are Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Staunton, Waynesboro, Clarke, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Manassas Park, Orange, Rockingham, and Warren County. This grant program offers an alternative approach to administrative preparation that will give candidates the knowledge and skills they need to become effective school administrators. We received $200 in candidate fees which may be used for professional staff development.


The mission of the Community Charter School Grant is to provide an alternative and innovative learning environment, using the arts, to help children in grades six through eight learn in ways that match their learning styles; developing the whole child intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially. Seeking to serve students who have not succeeded in school, the program will close their achievement gap by offering a balance of literacy tutorials and an arts-infused curriculum in support of the Divisionís strategic plan. The Community Charter School Grant is responsible for the following major programs and/or services: 6th and 7th Grade Instructional Program, Literacy and Arts Infused Education, Choice Theory School Development, and Mastery Learning. We received donations in the amount of $30,000 from anonymous donors to be used for payroll and benefits.
