To review the document, simply click on this link. According to Dr. Schatz, Superintendent, “This document showcases the educational programs and services available to our students and families. It is only through the support of the entire community that we are able to continue offering a comprehensive educational experience for all our students.”
As you review the annual report, you will find information on:
- The Fargo Public Schools Strategic Plan
- The District’s AdvancEd Accreditation
- Facts about numerous District departments and programs
- Demographic data about the District’s students
- Information about District and building assessments
- and More.
On Page 2 of the report, you will learn about the District’s accreditation, which was granted by AdvancED, an international nonprofit, nonpartisan accreditation organization. By achieving accreditation through AdvancED, the community can be assured that the Fargo Public Schools values increasing student achievement; provides a safe and enriching learning environment; and runs an efficient operation.
Another part of the Annual Report shows how our students and staff achieve at high levels of success, on Pages 12–15. These pages list some of the achievements for which students and staff have been recognized during the 2016–17 school year. It is wonderful to see how these endeavors support or demonstrate the District’s mission of achieving excellence by educating and empowering all students to succeed.
Throughout the Annual Report, descriptions of some of the District’s departments and programs will allow you to read more about the rich opportunities that our District provides to our students and community to help achieve the seven strategic initiatives found in the Fargo Public Schools Strategic Plan (page 1). The Strategic Plan is truly a proactive road map the District uses to create the kind of educational experiences the community desires for the children we are fortunate to serve.
These are just a few of the highlights of the information and data that can be found in the Fargo Public Schools’ 2016–17 Annual Report. I encourage you to review the report and find out even more about the Fargo Public School system and the fantastic work that is being done in our schools each and every day.
