Planning and Preparing for the future
“In early 2017, Fulton County Schools (FCS) began work on a new strategic plan, which will be rolled out at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. Our district's plan will serve as a guide and a focus for our work as a district and community for the next five years. It will help ensure that all stakeholders in the community – from the School Board, to staff, to principals, to teachers, to students, parents and community members – are working toward a shared set of goals and priorities.”

After working for much of the 2017-18 school year, our new strategic plan for 2018-2022 has been approved. Here is a link to the plan.
