School Board News

At its June 25 regular business meeting, the School Board approved the Family Life Education Curriculum Advisory Committee recommended lesson objectives, as amended to direct the Superintendent to retain in Family Life Education any objectives that were not required by the 2015 VDOE Health Standards of Learning. The Board also approved a formal process that would be used when approving the annual FCPS budget. In addition, the Board recognized retiring Region 3 Assistant Superintendent Deborah L. Tyler for 29 years of leadership and service to FCPS and adopted a resolution naming the interior courtyard at Freedom Hill Elementary School in honor of Dianne Gurdak and family.
