Fulton Focus

For the parents and patrons of the Fulton School District

April 18, 2019

A message from the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Patrons;


Students are in the middle of state-mandated testing district-wide. We appreciate your efforts to ensure your student(s) have adequate rest and nutrition in preparation for the assessments.


The District Facilities Review and subsequent plan coordinated by Hollis+MIller is now collecting perceptions and data from parents, patrons, and faculty members. In my view, this facilities review is the largest, most comprehensive look at FPS buildings and needs since the High School and Middle School additions 15+ years ago. Please express your opinion by taking a few minutes to participate in the building survey at the link below. Cumulative information will be reviewed, discussed, and refined at the 2nd Community Forum, April 25, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in the Fulton High School Commons. All planning documents, facility analysis, and initial cost projections are located on the FPS web site under the Facilities Tab.


Thank you for sending great students to work with.


Sincerely,



Jacque A. Cowherd, Ed.D.

Superintendent
