Office of the Superintendent
Dear students, staff, families, and community members:
Welcome to Fauquier County Public Schools! I'm now completing my ninth year serving as superintendent, and I continue to be amazed by the dedication of our students and staff. It is an honor to work with all of you.
To say the last several school years have been challenging is an understatement. However, I have an incredible amount of pride in how our students, families, staff, and community members navigated the challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic. From adapting to new ways of teaching and learning, to keeping students safe and well, to keeping students fed, we pulled off a miracle - together.
Our children are our future, and at FCPS, our commitment to our students is unwavering. Our goal is to ensure that every child receives what they need to be successful, no matter their disability, race, gender, or socioeconomic condition. We've done very well reaching this goal - in fact, our graduation rate for the class of 2021 was an all-time high of 96.2%. FCPS also continued to achieve high graduation rates in all four subgroup categories—Black Students, Hispanic Students, Students with Disabilities, and Economically Disadvantaged Students.
We don't accomplish this by accident. Instead, our entire staff (K-12) works intentionally to ensure that every student receives what they need to be successful. Students begin their graduation journey when they first enter our schools. Their success is the result of their hard work and the support from staff, families, and the community each step of the way.
Strong schools and strong communities go hand in hand, and Fauquier County is strong. The greatest lesson we've learned through COVID-19 is the magnitude of our combined strength. Together, we must continue to do what's best for kids.
Yours in education,
Dr. David Jeck
