  • FCPS Updating Website to Ensure Accessibility

    Fauquier County Public Schools is currently updating its website at www.fcps1.org in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Essentially the update means content on the site will be more limited. For approximately three months the school division has been making changes to the site in response to an out-of-state complaint filed with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) saying the FCPS site is not compliant with ADA.

  • First Competition for FHS VEX Robotics Club

    The Fauquier High School VEX Robotics Club participated in its first-ever competition this past Saturday, Feb. 4, at Woodgrove High School in Purcellville, VA, almost breaking into the top 20 teams in a field of 52. In spite of complications, including the rescheduling of the event twice due to inclement weather and the unavailability of several Team B members on the rescheduled event day, the FHS VEX Robotics Club would not be deterred. To compensate for the absence of several Team B members, FHS’ Team A split into two teams, with each of the two teams garnering three wins, two losses and no ties, which landed the newly formed Team B into the 21st place and Team A in 25th.
