    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).

  • New Homework Regulation Now in Effect for FCPS Students

    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.
