History and Refresh
Fargo Public Schools began work on its first Strategic Plan in 2000. During the 2014-15 school year, a new Strategic Plan was created. The FPS Strategic Plan was approved by the Fargo Board of Education on June 9, 2015 and was developed with an intentional process that allowed for a wide variety of stakeholder input.
Although the plan is a living document that is updated annually with slight modifications, it is also imperative for a periodic comprehensive review to ensure alignment with the Fargo Public Schools mission of educating and empowering all students to succeed.
While COVID-19 presented many challenges to FPS during the 2019-2020, 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years, it also created many opportunities for growth and innovation. One of the greatest successes during these challenging times was witnessing the staff of Fargo Public Schools provide high quality instruction to our students in a variety of instructional models. A refreshed FPS Strategic Plan allowed all patrons to incorporate lessons learned from those opportunities and replace completed Strategic Targets of the previous Strategic Plan with new standards to keep pushing FPS forward in fulfilling its mission.
