Middle School Advisory Curriculum Available for Public Review

The Middle School Advisory Curriculum proposed for adoption at the Albemarle County School Board meeting on August 25, 2022, is now available for public review. The proposed curriculum, intended for students in grades 6-8, will be available through September 22 on the third floor of the Albemarle County Office Building, located at 401 McIntire Road in Charlottesville.

Community members may review the advisory curriculum between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except on school holidays. Upon arrival, community members should check in with the third-floor receptionist.

The purpose of the proposed Middle School Advisory Curriculum is to support the whole child by building skills that empower students to fulfill their highest potential as collaborative, thoughtful, caring and successful individuals and contributors to their school and broader communities. The proposed curriculum includes digital citizenship lessons, identity and Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) lessons, and guaranteed pathway exploration experiences.

Following the public review, staff will consider any feedback received and make appropriate recommendations for action and/or adoption at the school board meeting on September 22, 2022.
