Six Late-Start Half Days Added to 2015-16 Calendar

The FWPS Board of Directors voted at the regular May 26 board meeting to approve six late-start days during the 2015-16 school year at all district schools. The late-start days are designed to support student learning by providing teachers with time for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).

Attendance Counts!

School attendance is essential to academic success, but too often students, parents and schools do not realize how quickly absences (excused as well as unexcused) can add up to academic trouble. Chronic absence — missing 10 percent of the school year, or just 2-3 days every month—can translate into third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing courses and ninth-graders dropping out of high school. Learn more about how attendance can affect your student’s success on the FWPS website:
