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.

Respected Local Artist Speaks At Truman

keegn hall

Kirkland artist Keegan Hall spoke on campus last week and encouraged Truman students to follow their dreams. Students were wowed by Mr. Hall and he had some impressive reflections about his visit as well:

Last week I had the opportunity to speak to the students at Truman High School … I was invited to tell the students about my story and show them my artwork but, as I began to speak, I realized that I had an opportunity to deliver a message that was far more meaningful and, ironically, less about me… and more about them.

September 30: First Scheduled Wednesday Late-Start Day

The first Wednesday Late-Start Day is next week on September 30.

Truman will start at 11:15 a.m. The start time for the Puget Sound Skills Center will not change.  Students attending PSSC will need to provide their own transportation to Truman and arrive at their regular time to catch the PSSC bus.

These late-start days are designed to support student learning by providing teachers with time for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). PLCs are school improvement models aimed at improving student learning for each individual student. As FWPS continues its focus on increasing student achievement, this schedule will provide teachers with additional opportunities for collaboration.
