News & Events



ACPS is currently conducting an analysis of Jefferson-Houston PreK-8 and Patrick Henry K-8 schools to determine if these programmatic models should be maintained and, if not, what are the human, programmatic, operational, and fiscal implications of other models.  Final Recommendations will be shared with the ACPS School Board for decision-making.
We are currently seeking families from the Jefferson-Houston and Patrick Henry School communities who are interested in participating in an in-person focus group workshop on May 21 for Patrick Henry families and May 22 for Jefferson-Houston families from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm. Interpretation will be provided.   If you would like to participate in the parent focus group for your school, please sign up at the link below no later than May 20, 2024.

If you have questions about the upcoming parent focus groups please email Dr. Pierrette Finney at
