District Headlines & Features
Dear Federal Way Public Schools Parents, Families and Community,
As the 2016–17 school year comes to a close, we have much to celebrate and work to still accomplish if we are to achieve the goals within our strategic plan. This year we launched our focused improvement efforts at each of our 39 school sites that align with the five goals within the strategic plan. If you were to spend time at any school in the district, you would see each school focused on Goal 2 Whole Child: Thriving, Confident, Responsible Individuals and one of the other five academic goals.
Due to our shared vision and focused efforts, we are beginning to see incremental improvements in some of our measures of progress like parent participation in student led-conferences, student sign-up for the College Bound Scholarship and FAFSA, and growth in reading due to the use of our newly adopted English Language Arts curriculum.
