Partnering with the KR Librarians on Your Child's Book Selection for 2022-2023

  • School libraries partner with our families to ensure that book checkouts are appropriate for the individual students’ level, interests and beliefs. School librarians welcome these discussions with students and their families
  • Parents are also encouraged to guide their child’s book choices by having discussions and making recommendations that reflect their interests and values. The Destiny Catalog of library materials is available to every parent and community member to view through this link:
  • Using this link, parents can contact the school librarian by phone or email to have a discussion about access to library materials. When possible, a note will be placed accordingly on the child’s account. By filling in this Google Form, parents can request an email notification of what books their child has checked out on a weekly basis
  • For more information about our school libraries, please visit the FCPS1 Library Media Services website. Also, for your reference is this link to the School Board policy on library material selection

Final Exams and Academic Incentive

Final Exams

Teachers are required to formally assess students throughout the term. These assessments should be authentic in nature, where students actively demonstrate knowledge through presentations, projects, reports, portfolios, etc. Ideally, this will occur at the end of a unit, course, semester, program, and/or school year.

  • Final exams will be completed between December 8-16

Academic Incentive

FCPS high school students are afforded the opportunity to be exempt from attending the specific class(es) on the final two days of the fall term (Thursday, December 15 and Friday, December 16) provided they meet the following criteria:

  • Pass the SOL/End-of-Course assessment (if required) during the term in which they are taking the class and are passing the course OR
  • Earn an A or B in the course

Due to the pandemic, this incentive is not based upon student absences.
