What does the Board of Education Do?

The Board of Education sets policy and direction for the A+ Children’s Academy School District and exerts a continuing supervisory responsibility by acting on all contracts, payment of monies, employment, program quality, and development of effective educational programs.

The Board Meeting

Ohio’s Sunshine Law mandates that school board meetings be open to the public with the exception of executive sessions. In an executive session, the board may discuss, but not vote, on personal matters, property purchases, possible legal action, employee negotiations, security arrangements, and items the law says must be kept confidential.

Our VISION is for all APCA students to be excited about learning and empowered to control their own educational pathway.

Our MISSION is for all APCA students strive toward their full potential through an engaging, standards-based, arts-integrated curriculum that acknowledges each student’s individuality.

Our Goal is to achieve an acceptable grade in the state grading scale. We believe all students should be proficient no matter what level they were when they entered A+ Children’s Academy Community School.

Arts Integration at APCA students and parents appreciate the strong efforts to integrate the arts into everyday learning environment. With visual and auditory learning opportunities we are providing children with additional resources to learn the core subjects. Children come to our school from all walks of life. Our staff strives to provide a nurturing environment while guiding the students to make positive choices in their lives. We look forward to the coming years as we watch our students grow and meet our testing expectations. Through additional support and intervention, all students have the ability to achieve! –  APCA staff
