  • Stratford designation School Board Acts to Support Historic Designation of Stratford
    At last night’s meeting, the School Board acted to support historic designation of the Stratford Site, based on design guidelines and designation language for the site developed collaboratively by County Historic Preservation Program and APS staff. Stratford is the location where the integration of schools first occurred in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The proposed guidelines honor the historical significance of the site, and balance the importance of architectural preservation with the renovations that are being planned to expand the school building to accommodate growing enrollment. The County Board will consider the guidance for approval in June.

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
