Archives Education Program

K-12 Education Programs

  • Length: 45 minutes
  • Limit: 40 students
  • Days: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Good record-keeping is the foundation for government accountability. When records are properly maintained, citizens can examine and keep track of what elected officials, high-level managers, and other government employees are doing. Documents can tell the story of people's ideas and how they behaved at any particular time. The Archives & Records Center preserves and makes available to the public the records of the City of Alexandria, Virginia government.

K-12 students can learn how to handle historic and fragile documents, determine what kinds of documents must be kept permanently, and what preservation measures can be undertaken to ensure that documents survive. To arrange a tour, contact the Archivist by email or at 703.746.4591.
