Accountability: All members, employees, volunteers, and partners have a shared responsibility to align their efforts toward the achievement of our association’s strategic initiatives.
Public Safety Forum
On Oct. 26, 2022, Alexandria PTA Council, Parents for Safe Alexandria Schools and Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) are sponsoring a school safety forum for the ACPS community. During this forum, participants will have the opportunity to ask a panel of community experts about what they are doing — as well as what we all can do — to help keep our students safe.
Interim Superintendent Dr. Melanie Kay-Wyatt will speak on maintaining safety in our schools and community, the division’s collaboration with the Alexandria Police Department (APD) and how families can work with ACPS to keep students safe. Please note that child-sensitive content will be discussed.
