Board of Education Hears Plan to Expand Alternative Learning Opportunities

A proposal to expand current alternative learning opportunities will include sixth (6th)-through-eighth (8th) graders in space to be created at the Fairfield Academy. The plan was presented by Mandy Aug, Director of Curriculum and Instruction; Kyle Jamison, Director of the Academy; and Joseph Penney, Director of Business Operations.  Under the proposal, the Academy administration would work closely with Crossroads and Creekside middle schools to identify students who might benefit from the non-traditional learning environment at the Academy. The full-day program would have a total of 30 students - 15 seats available to each school. Transportation would be provided, and students would have support from three teachers and the current administration and office staff at the Academy. At no time would the middle school participants be in the same learning areas with high school students.  Students would also have direct access to the Academy's current community resources and mental health supports.

For her, going above and beyond includes supporting, serving, and teaching ALL students and not just the ones that she is assigned to help. People appreciate the fact that she is positive each and every day and genuinely cares about every single student and teacher. (Read more)...

Congratulations to Doug Beals, Named FCSD Teacher of the Year for 2019

When Superintendent Billy Smith notified our recipient that he had been chosen for the Teacher of the Year award, there was a moment of silence…followed by, “You’ve got to be kidding me, right?” Mr. Smith assured him that he wasn’t kidding. Once the shock had subsided, he went on to tell Mr. Smith that he decided to get into education for one reason: to make a difference in the lives of students. Mr. Smith assured him, based on all of the nominations, that he is definitely making a difference (Read More)
