I want to personally welcome all those who are interested in the Fluvanna County Public Schools. We are excited about having you as part of our “Fluco Family.”
During the 2002-2003 school year the Fluvanna County School Board set the following as the mission and vision for our schools:
The mission of the Fluvanna County Public Schools is to provide quality education whereby all students acquire the skills, knowledge, and values necessary to develop into responsible and productive citizens of the twenty-first century.
An educational partnership comprised of highly qualified educators, responsive learners, supportive parents, and a community dedicated to lifelong learning through responsibility and respect.
In following these statements of mission and vision, we have concentrated on the issues of Individualization, Diversity, and Expectations. We have discussed the importance of individualizing for each child and the recognition their uniqueness. We have stressed the importance of high expectations we have for all children. To these, we add Achievement and an appreciation for Lifelong learning as evidence of our success toward the tasks set by our School Board.
By concentrating on these issues we have seen test scores, graduation rates and other outcome indicators increase over the past seven years. This is due to the hard work and dedication of our staff, parents and students. However, we realize that learning is an ever-changing process. The skills that have been important in the past may well be replaced by new requirements in the future. We must teach our students how to apply the skills they learn not just memorize facts to be tested. We are dedicated to this task. By continuing to assess and adapt these efforts, we will achieve our objective for children at all levels to have the ability to pursue their goals and dreams for the future.
To those new to Fluvanna County Public Schools, we consist of five schools. The elementary schools include Columbia and Cunningham (both Grades K-2) as well as Central school (Grades K-5). In addition, we have Fluvanna Middle School (Grades 6-8) and Fluvanna County High School (Grades 9-12). For the upcoming school year, the student enrollment is projected to be 3,761.
We are proud that the Fluvanna County Public Schools remain at the heart of our community. We understand that our community is growing and diversifying. Our efforts must reflect this. In addition to changes in teaching, we have also begun the process of building a new high school. This building is designed for the future both in terms of education and service to our entire community. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments regarding our schools.
