ACPS Statement

Augusta County Public Schools is committed to educating every child for future success and providing safe and productive learning environments, every day.  Hatred, racism, bias, and violence have no place in Augusta County Public Schools or our community.  We maintain as paramount priorities our commitment to nondiscrimination and equality in all our programs, services, and activities, and our commitment to fostering and celebrating in all our staff and students' compassion and respect for diversity and individual merit.  We are fully aware that intolerance and violence have lasting, negative impacts far beyond just those immediately involved, and particularly for our students, and we are confident, even in difficult times, that kindness, tolerance, and empathy are among the easiest qualities to model and share with our students, families, and community.
