Dear Fairfield Area Community:
The Fairfield Area School District is committed to the growth of our 21st Century learners through our academic and extracurricular programs and activities. As I begin my second full year as Superintendent of our District, I am honored and excited to continue the transformation of the district through community and District collaboration: students who establish goals and commit themselves to achieve or surpass them; hard-working individuals who facilitate, deliver and contribute to our programs and activities; local and state first responders’ visibility in our schools as well as extracurricular activities; and the families and community partners who are proud supporters of these collective efforts.
These combined efforts will serve us well during the 2023-2024 school year as we develop our Profile of a Graduate with a straightforward approach to preparing students for career readiness and college in the 21st Century. The Profile of a Graduate identifies skills and competencies that our graduates will possess upon graduation – skills well beyond basic math, science, history, and English requirements. Additionally, we will examine and revise our current Comprehensive Plan that serves as a roadmap to guide and support district decisions through the year 2027! The three primary Comprehensive Plan goals steering the district are:
- Clear and consistent curricula standards implemented across all schools for all students.
- A commitment to focused and comprehensive professional development.
- Effective instructional practices across all classrooms in each school.
I invite you to join us at our many programs, events, and activities throughout the year. I am excited to support your child with a focus on 21st Century skill development and building our Profile of a Graduate. I ask for your support of the Board of School Directors, administration, and teachers as we continue to transform and grow the learning opportunities available to our students.
Thomas J. Haupt
Superintendent of Schools
