Office of the Superintendent
Dear students, staff, families, and community members:
Welcome to Fauquier County Public Schools! I'm beginning my tenth year as superintendent here in Fauquier County, and it is an honor and a privilege to serve this school community. And I can tell you, I've never been more excited about the beginning of a school year as I am today.
The last two years have been very difficult. We've faced many challenges, but with every challenge has come an opportunity. And I'm very proud of the way our staff has stepped up and met each challenge head-on. Every opportunity we've experienced has helped us grow as a school division and as a staff. And I think, as a result, we're actually better than we were before.
But our goals have remained the same - student safety and student learning. In terms of student learning, it is so important to us as a school division to figure out the needs of our students individually and meet those needs. In terms of student safety, it's important for us always to be looking at ways to enhance student safety in each of our schools, and I think we've done a very good job of doing that.
And I just want to say this in conclusion: in order to meet these goals and become better versions of ourselves, it's going to take the entire school community. We've got to work together as a school community, as a staff, as parents, and as community leaders to make the school division even better than it was, especially coming off of two very difficult years. But I believe very strongly that we're going to do it, and we're going to continue to be successful and continue to be a great school division. I hope everyone has a great school year.
Yours in education,
Dr. David Jeck
