Middle School Master Plan Gallery Walk - Nov. 28

Middle School Master Plan Gallery Walk - Nov. 28

Dear Students, Staff & Families:

This past spring, Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) partnered with VMDO Architects to develop a 20-year master plan to address, improve and resolve capacity challenges and renovation needs at the division’s middle schools. After a months-long comprehensive study, during which they toured and assessed the division’s middle school facilities and collected input from middle school students, staff and families, VMDO Architects has recommended a phased approach to addressing the division’s middle school capacity and equity needs.

Our next step is to invite the community to review and provide feedback on this phased approach to our Middle School Facilities Master Plan. We will host a gallery walk on Tuesday, November 28, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium of Community Lab School, located at 1200 Forest Street in Charlottesville.

The gallery will open for public viewing at 6:30 p.m. ACPS will officially welcome guests at 6:45, followed by a presentation by VMDO Architects. The gallery walk and a Q&A session will follow at 7:30.

In addition to asking questions and providing feedback during the gallery walk, community members are welcome to email questions and comments to the project team at msmasterplan@k12albemarle.org. VMDO Architects will incorporate community feedback into their final report, which will be delivered to the project steering committee in December. The final plan will be presented to the Albemarle County School Board and made available to the public in early 2024.
