Strategic Planning Project Update - December 17, 2018

Strategic Planning MeetingThe Strategic Plan Portrait Design Team held its third meeting on December 17 and finalized the competencies that comprise the Portrait of a FCPS Graduate. Those competencies include:
  • critical thinking and problem solving
  • collaboration
  • empathy/social and cross-cultural skills
  • communication
  • flexibility and adaptability/resilience
  • metacognition/learning how to learn
  • creativity and innovation
The team also continued to work toward developing a visual representation of the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate. The group, which includes teachers, administrators, parents, and business/community leaders, also reviewed feedback from the student and business leader focus groups related to the competencies students need in order to be successful in whatever they choose to pursue following graduation from high school.

Members of the school division's instructional leadership team highlighted how the Portrait of a Graduate that’s being developed connects to the work currently underway in the school division as well as how the updated Strategic Plan will be implemented once it’s finalized and adopted by the School Board.
