  • AHS Marching Black & Gold Win 2016 ISSMA Championship

    The Avon High School Marching Black and Gold won the 2016 ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) State Championship (Class A)! This is the 13th championship (13 state titles in 16 years) for AHS. The band is led by Director Jay Webb. He is now the winningest band director in Indiana’s 200-year history.

    “The Band program is a great deal of pride for the school & community,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Winning 13 straight championships doesn’t happen by accident. There is no group who works harder.”

    During the intense competition, ACSC Superintendent Dr. Maggie Hoernemann said she saw nothing but “beauty and competitive grace” from the students. “They make all of us better and I could not be more proud!”

    The ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) Marching Band State Finals were held at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. This event is the culmination of many weeks of marching band competitions across the state of Indiana, bringing together the top 10 bands across 4 classes (A, B, C, & D) chosen from the Top 10 in each class in Semi-State competition during the previous weekend. This event typically attracts more than 20,000 marching band fans from across the state throughout the day. 

    Here are links to media coverage of the event:

Superintendent's Message

A Message from Superintendent Hoernemann


The unusually mild November is over and the challenges of the winter months are upon us. As a reminder, we have two potential snow make-up days built into the calendar: Monday, January 16 and Monday, February 20 (if cancellation occurs five or more days prior to either day). We are also exploring the use of a Virtual Option on snow days--a practice already used in about 120 districts across the state. Watch for further information about this in the coming weeks.

When weather is a concern, decisions to delay or cancel school are more complex than they seem. While parents like plenty of notice, the conditions often change dramatically overnight and the forecasts can be wrong. With safety as our number one concern, we talk with local and county officials, transportation personnel, and ACSC administrators who go out testing the roads throughout our district before coming to a final conclusion.
Thank you for recognizing that the decision about what's best for all 9,500 students can be difficult and we certainly understand that no decision works for everyone. For example, if your neighborhood hasn't been plowed but the roads are clear, you may be frustrated that school is in session. What works for most may not work for all.
So, what's a parent to do when he/she disagrees with weather-related decisions? 

(1) Decide what's best for your child. We respect your decisions.

(2) Sign up for Here Comes the Bus (HCTB). To ensure that children are not waiting too long outside for the bus or if there is a slight delay, Here Comes the Bus is an app offered as a FREE service to ACSC families. For more details, visit the Transportation web page here

In addition, please take time to read the helpful guide: What You Need to Know: School Closings, Delays and Early Dismissals. It has important information regarding notifications and where to check for weather-related announcements. Click here to view the guide.

 As always, I welcome your feedback. Feel free to email me at
