At the Jan. 21 Appomattox County board of supervisors meeting, the board unanimously adopted a resolution, as put forth by Falling River District supervisor John Hinkle, to declare Jan. 26 through Feb. 1 as Appomattox County School Choice Week. 

School Choice Week celebrates each family’s freedom to choose from a host of education options that best suit their child’s educational needs. 

In Appomattox County alone, parents can choose from the Appomattox County Public Schools, Appomattox Christian Academy, Cornerstone Christian Academy, and home education.
