FWPS Strategic Planning Initiative

Creating a vision for our children’s future.

Federal Way Public Schools has embarked on a Strategic Planning Initiative to develop the vision and direction for enhancing student achievement and success in the coming years.

The strategic plan will be our roadmap toward a future vision and provides unity, clarity and direction to the important work of the district.

In developing our plan, the District will use an approach that is inclusive and intentional and values all voices, and will continuously engage all stakeholders within the Federal Way Public Schools community.

This work must be collectively developed by members of our greater school community. There will be many opportunities to provide input on the Strategic Plan over the course of the year. The online survey is the initial effort to gather input, a series of forums for students, families and communities is another opportunity for participation.

We hope you’ll join in shaping what our school system should do and be for our community’s children.

Notice of Directory Infornmation

You have a say in who can see your child’s directory information
Federal law requires schools inform parents that some of their child’s information, called “Directory Information,” might be used for certain school-related purposes. Parents and guardians may tell schools not to release this information. This is part of a law called The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).

If you wish to restrict how the district shares this information, please contact the school office and request the form.

What is directory information?
• Your child’s name.
• Photographs, video and other images of your child.
• Recognition, diplomas and awards received by your child.
• Date and place of birth.
• Most recent and previous schools attended.
• Dates of enrollment and enrollment status.
• Participation in officially recognized activities and sports, and weight/height of student, if related to athletic participation.
• Electronic (e-mail) address and telephone number, including cell phone, student ID number.
• Student ID number (only if it cannot be used to gain access to education records).

We ask parents to think carefully before restricting this information.
Unfortunately, by restricting your child’s directory information for school publications, your student’s name and photo cannot be included in student annuals and yearbooks. He or she will not be able to be part of classroom, team or club photos which are intended to be published in yearbooks.
And, if you say “no” to providing contact information to outside organizations, your child’s name, address and phone number/s will not be provided to non-district organizations, including: graduation supplies companies; colleges; or military recruiters; and, after graduation, school reunion committees.

What if you change your mind?
If you ask us to restrict your student information, but later change your mind, just ask to update this form at your child’s school office. District information site.
