Communication

School Board

Fredericksburg City School Board

The Fredericksburg City School Board is committed to providing equal opportunity for every student to achieve maximum intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth and to ensuring that each student be equipped to communicate effectively with other people, to be competent both in the workplace and in higher education and to feel confident of the ability to make creative and constructive decisions in his/her life.

School Board Objectives

The school division is committed to excellence in education, equality of educational opportunity, and the recognition of each student's individuality. Inasmuch as students differ in their rate of physical, mental, emotional and social growth and vary in their needs and abilities, learning opportunities are provided that are consistent with personal development and potential. Programs emphasize diagnostic and prescriptive instruction, allowing an individual approach to each student's learning style and educational needs.

The educational program introduces each student to a variety of interest and subject areas that offer exposure to the range of opportunities available in later years. These experiences produce the basis for further education and future employment. As students demonstrate increased maturity, they may assume more responsibility for the decisions regarding their education.

The school environment should be responsive and conducive to learning. The physical environment facilitates and enhances the learning experiences available to each student. A responsive environment includes competent, dedicated teachers using a variety of techniques and a classroom atmosphere where students can function and develop according to their abilities. Safety, physical comfort, and appearance also are vital environmental components.

Speaking at Meetings

All meetings of the School Board are open to the public, except as otherwise permitted by law. Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend meetings of the Fredericksburg City School Board to observe its deliberations. Any member of the community may address the Board on matters related to the Fredericksburg City Public Schools at any regular meeting as provided in the accompanying regulation. Persons wishing to address the School Board are requested to contact the superintendent, the School Board chairman, or their designee for placement on the agenda. The Chairperson opens the floor for public comment/hearing of citizens and asks if there are any citizens wishing to address the Board.  If anyone wishes to speak, the Chairperson asks that they give their name and address for the record.  The Chair also states that each citizen is allotted three minutes to speak, and the time will be monitored electronically.
