Pack Your Child's Bag for College & Career Success! Explore their Backpack Checklist!

For every grade, every APS student will have a backpack checklist to monitor his or her progress. It is important for families to collaborate with staff and community members to help every student shape a successful future, starting as early as preschool. To encourage more of these conversations, we developed a College and Career Success Backpack checklist for families. 

Welcome APS Parents and Families!

Families naturally want their students to succeed. Research shows that students whose families are involved in their education find it easier to be successful.
