About My Listening Tour
Albemarle County Public Schools is becoming a more diverse community, which offers us continued opportunities to capitalize on our differences and grow collectively.
Last school year, our 14,000 students represented 89 countries and spoke 74 home languages. Our student demographics were as follows: 10.5% Black, 12.8% Hispanic, and 65.4% White. Ten percent were English Learners; 30.4% received free and reduced price meals; 11.9% were identified for special education services; and 9.8% were identified as gifted.
To that end, I hope to hear about the needs, challenges, hopes and ideas of as many members of our school community as possible. During each listening opportunity, I promise to listen more than I talk, to be open to your ideas, to focus on building relationships with you that will move us forward as a school division, and to collaborate with you throughout each phase of my transition plan.
