Annual Report 2012-2013

The Superintendent’s Annual Report
By David Jeck, Ed.D., Division Superintendent

I am grateful you have taken the time and effort to open this annual report and look through it. This is my first official report to the citizenry of Fauquier County since I became superintendent on May 1, 2013. To say that it is a privilege to serve as the superintendent of schools here may sound trite, but it is so true. I am humbled to have this opportunity and pledge to do the best job that I possibly can to serve the citizens, but most of all the students and staff of this school division.

In the months that I have been here I have been extremely impressed with the quality of the employees and the caliber of the students. Because that is true, I want this report to focus on people ... the people who make up this school division. Yes, you will find data in the pages of this report, but because there are faces behind the data, I am choosing to highlight the achievements of the excellent students, teachers and support staff who make up Fauquier County Public Schools. On the cover of this report are the 14 teachers nominated by their schools for consideration as The Washington Post’s 2013 Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher of the Year. I believe that the most important factor in any child’s education is the quality of the teacher standing before him or her. We have some of the best in Fauquier County, and while we are proud of all of them, we especially salute those nominated as Outstanding Teacher of the Year. We offer special congratulations to Kathy Crane, reading specialist at Coleman Elementary School, honored as this year’s Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher of the Year.

I hope you enjoy perusing the pages of this report and know you will appreciate the accomplishments of our students and teachers. Feel free to share your thoughts with me regarding the report, especially as we offer it in an electronic format for the first time, as we take another step in being good stewards of our stakeholders’ resources.
