Annual Report 2015-2016
The Superintendent’s Annual Report
By David Jeck, Ed.D., Division Superintendent
Thank you for taking the time to review my annual report. I am definitely proud to report on the amazing achievements of our students and staff. If you would like to dig deeper and read more about official FCPS achievement data, please take the time to visit the new and improved reporting vehicle on the Virginia Department of Education website; you will find it at schoolquality.virginia.gov where you are able to see state, division and individual school data.
Our ultimate objective is the provision of a world-class education for our students. We are relentlessly in pursuit of this very worthy objective. Since James Collins wrote “Good to Great” in 2001, school divisions across the nation have adopted this title as their mantra. I don’t blame them. We’ve done the same thing and have consistently maintained good to great as our overarching goal. Are we there yet? Nope. We have work to do, but what you will find as you peruse this publication is that we are getting closer and closer. To get there, ultimately, requires several things:
Consistent leadership with a consistent message
A specific and an easily definable vision of excellence
Efficacy, efficacy, efficacy
Adequate technology, human resources and monetary resources
The courage necessary to always make decisions in the best interest of students
2015-2016 was a very good year. I won’t preach it too much because, if you read this report, you’ll see it for yourself; however, we can never be satisfied with where we are. We have to keep pushing. Again, I thank you for reading this report, and I thank you for your support of Fauquier County Public Schools!
