• Principal Picture


    Welcome to A-C Central Jr.-Sr. High School, 


    My name is Candi Shaver, and I am the Principal at A-C Central Jr.-Sr. High School, a grade 5-12 building located in Ashland, Illinois.  I am beginning my second year as Principal in District #262, and have been in the field of education for the past 18 years, both as a teacher and most recently as Principal in the A-C Central School District.  As both Principal and resident of the school district, I am very committed to our schools, which serve both the communities of Chandlerville, Illinois and Ashland, Illinois.

    Our grade 5-12 building is home to approximately 250 students, as well as a very committed, supportive, and family oriented faculty and staff with a collective mindset of continual improvement.  It is our aim to continually improve our instructional services as we also press students to continually grow and improve educationally. A-C Central Jr.-Sr. High school prides itself on providing an outstanding and well-rounded education that prepares students for life.  Our mission is to produce successful, responsible, and productive citizens through rigorous, high quality, and collaborative educational experiences. This is where we PREPARE TODAY’S STUDENTS FOR TOMORROW’S WORLD, as our vision for the district states.   

    I consider it an honor to be able to serve the students and families of the A-C Central School District.  While providing the best education possible to students is our primary goal, it is likewise my aim to promote a continuous culture of positive relationships and communication with all school district stakeholders – one in which every participant (from student to parent, and from teacher or community member to Board of Education member) is seen, heard, and valued.  Toward that end, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  

    It is my belief that through positive relationships reflecting joint communication and collaboration efforts, U-KNIGHTED WE DO CONQUER in providing the best possible education and learning atmosphere to the students of the A-C Central School District!
