Early Release Monday for all FCSC Elementary Schools for the 2024-2025 school year Dear Parents and Guardians, We are excited to announce a new initiative aimed at enhancing student achievement and supporting our dedicated teachers. Starting for the 2024/2025 school year, FCSC Elementary Schools will implement an early release on the first Monday of each month. On these days, schools will dismiss students between 1:30 and 1:35 PM. Transportation will be provided, with buses running an hour earlier than usual on these early release days. The early release initiative is designed to bolster student performance in key academic areas. By dedicating additional time for professional development, our teachers can increase the effectiveness of Tier 1 instruction in both math and reading, as indicated by CFA data and ILEARN checkpoints. This dedicated time is expected to lead to an increase in IREAD pass rates and higher achievement in ILEARN assessments for both math and reading.

Early Release
There are a lot of questions about how the school board goes about choosing a new superintendent and rumors that we already have applicants whose names we know (which we don’t). We decided we wanted to use a search team to help us find the right person. We interviewed Indiana School Board Association, who has an arm that does superintendent searches. We also interviewed the University Team who is comprised of education professor/previous superintendents from Indiana State University, Ball State University, Purdue University and Indiana University. This group is currently involved in 22 of the 29 superintendent searches currently happening across Indiana. The board chose to go with the University Team and have provided them with a personalized ‘common’ application (personalized for FCSC), which was then posted through a number of education associations, as well as through their own connections via the alumni at each university. After applicants apply, the University Team will call each one individually and ‘vet’ them to see if they are a good fit for FCSC. They will present us with all applicants, and name those that they felt rose to the top. We will meet again on Tuesday, May 14th, for a 4-hour executive session, to go over candidates. Until that time, we do not know how many people applied for the position or who those individuals are. We will not get any of that information until we meet on the 14th. If you have any other questions pertaining to this process, please feel free to contact any of your school board members.

Dear Parents and Guardians, As we eagerly anticipate the upcoming solar eclipse, an extraordinary event that will be both educational and memorable for our students, we would like to express our thanks to the Fayette County Tourism, for their generous donation of eclipse glasses and sunflower seeds to all of our students. Safety is our utmost priority, especially when it involves an event as unique as a solar eclipse. While this event provides a fantastic opportunity for learning and observation, it must be done safely. We strongly encourage all parents and guardians to supervise their children during the eclipse viewing. We recommend discussing the importance of never looking at the sun without proper eye protection, as this can cause serious and permanent eye damage. Let's make this solar eclipse a memorable and safe experience for our students. We appreciate your cooperation and are here to answer any questions you may have about eclipse viewing safety. Thank you once again to Fayette County Tourism for their generous donation and to all of you for your continued support of our school and students.

Dear Parents and Guardians, As part of our commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of all our students and staff, we want to inform you of the procedures we will follow in the event that we are under a tornado warning during dismissal time. In line with our Fayette County School Corporation (FCSC) crisis management plan, should there be a tornado warning issued at dismissal time, we will not proceed with dismissing students until the threat of imminent weather has passed or the tornado warning is officially lifted. This decision is made with the safety of our students and staff as our foremost concern, and we kindly ask for your understanding and cooperation. During such an event, please be aware that staff will also be sheltering in place and, as such, will not be able to dismiss students to parents or guardians. We understand that this may cause inconvenience or concern, but please rest assured that the safety of your children is our top priority. Our school is equipped with designated safe spaces, and our staff is trained to ensure that all students are kept safe and calm until the situation is resolved. We appreciate your support and cooperation in ensuring the safety of our school community. Should you have any questions or concerns about our crisis management procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
