Over the past week, we’ve been fielding questions from our community about the potential teacher strike at Columbus City Schools.
We want to confirm to our families that our school will not be affected by the strike. As a public charter school, we operate independently from public school districts.
We will begin the school year in-person as planned on Wednesday 8/10. For information about the new school year (calendar, supply lists, dress code, etc), visit our Parent Resources page.
Good afternoon families!
We had a great “official” first week of school! It has been great seeing our students in person each day! We finished our Culture Camp this week and our students are working super hard on meeting our high expectations that we have in our building. Teachers created robust and engaging activities for students and they had a blast! Culture drives everything that we do so it is critical that culture is strong in each classroom. Please make sure to ask your child what the expectations are in his/her classroom and what they are doing to get their Dojo Points/Dollars each day. We use Class Dojo to reward our students each day. Students get a minimum of 5 points each day and are able to earn additional points/dollars for going above and beyond. We connect these ideal behaviors with our key pillars. (Ignite, Inspire, Empower, Lead).
On Thursday, we started instruction in all of our classrooms. It was great seeing students push themselves to master key foundational concepts. You will see that a tracker (located in take home folder) went home on Friday and it will include important academic information for the week as well as behavior updates each week. Please read the student handbook to see what our Positive Behavior Management System looks like in our building. Culture is everything and we focus on recognizing the positive behaviors that we see each day. We do hold super high expectations for our students and practice these skills each day. 🙂
We have a lot coming up over the next couple of weeks so please mark your calendars!
Please read over carefully. 🙂

Dear ACCEL Staff & Community,
The horrific death of George Floyd coupled with other events that recently occurred in this country are heartbreaking. The video of his death is one of the most horrifying things we have seen in our lives. We grieve. We also acknowledge that many of our employees and students have experienced racism firsthand. This tragedy serves as a grim reminder that as a society, we still have a long way to go to stomp out racism. We want to make it clear that we are committed to fighting against racism and discrimination, and want to assure you that it has no place in our company or at our schools, and it will not be tolerated. We must strive to be inclusive in every way, and we will be planning professional development programs on this topic which will be delivered this summer to our entire school and corporate staff.
We also believe we have an obligation beyond what most companies have. We have consciously chosen to manage schools in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country and the world. While many school operators avoid these areas, we seek them out. To our surprise and dismay, we are often asked why. The answer is simple. We want to help the children who need it most. Maria and I set out to do this when we founded the company and we have never wavered. If our company does not provide our most vulnerable students with a quality education, they may not have a chance at economic success. A society that does not give every child this chance is, by definition, unjust. The opportunity to succeed must exist regardless of a child’s skin color or economic situation. Unfortunately, far too many children do not have this opportunity.
As we all mourn the death of Mr. Floyd, let us look inward and outward to make sure we are inclusive in our work environments and in our schools. Let us also do our part to end the senseless racism that exists in our society, empower all our students with the belief that they can succeed in the world, and give our students the knowledge and skills they need. Most of all, let us hope and pray they will experience a society in their lifetime where these tragedies no longer occur, and human beings are judged as Dr. King hoped they would be judged someday: “by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.”
