One School, One Book: Coleman completed a special project recently. Every family received a copy of the same book - Katherine Applegate's The One and Only Ivan - and was asked to read it together at home. A flier was sent home and a reading schedule was posted. Families also listened to a mystery reader read a section each day.

At its June 13, 2017, meeting the Fauquier County School Board approved two revisions to the school year 2017-2018 calendar, which the board originally approved in January 2016: The week of spring break is changed to March 26-30, 2018, one week earlier than originally designated. The change aligns the FCPS spring break with that of the majority of surrounding school divisions and allows for employees to be off on Good Friday, a request made through the superintendent’s Advisory Committee for Educators and Staff (ACES).
There is hope for the Fauquier County Public Schools student holed up in his or her room for hours on end laboring over homework assignments. Love it or hate it or simply wanting to debate it, homework can be the bane or boon of a student/parent relationship and a help or hindrance to a student/teacher relationship. Major Warner, associate superintendent for instruction, presented a regulation to the Fauquier County School Board at its June 13 meeting that will lay a firm foundation for what homework should look like for FCPS students in the coming school year and beyond. The regulation, which did not require school board approval, will be attached to the existing FCPS Homework Policy 6-5.4. FCPS principals devoted an almost year-long effort toward clarifying the school division’s position on homework.
Again this year, in an effort to save money in utility costs, Fauquier County Public Schools will institute a four-day work week for employees who work during the summer. From June 5 through August 4, FCPS employees will work on an extended schedule Monday through Thursday – from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. – and all FCPS buildings, including the School Board Office, will be closed on Fridays.
