Innovate. Learn. Lead.
In Fraser, we have seen tremendous success thus far in the efforts we have made as a school district and community to provide our students with a comprehensive and rigorous educational experience. It has been exciting to see our staff members, students, and parents embrace our efforts to redesign our learning environments in order to address the essential skills that are needed to prepare our students for the 21st century. By doing so, our students are demonstrating success both academically and personally. I’m proud of our staff members for working diligently to improve as a professional learning community and by continuously reflecting on what needs to be done to further improve student achievement and provide classrooms that address the needs of today’s learner.
Fraser Public Schools and the members of the Strategic Planning Task Force spent the 2010-11 school year engaged in an in-depth process of developing a strategic plan that would guide our district efforts over the next three (3) years. This process brought forth discussions regarding many of our accomplishments and identified areas that need improvement. Throughout the numerous committee and sub-committee meetings that were held, our conversations have been focused on improving our efficiencies and the quality of education that we offer to our students. Countless hours have been dedicated to developing a plan that will build upon our outstanding tradition while focusing on the identified areas of improvement. As a result, Fraser Public Schools will continue to be one of the finest school systems in the State of Michigan and the country. It is the expectation of the Strategic Planning Task Force that our community and our staff will use this document as the beginning source when developing program and school improvements.
In closing, I would like to thank the Board of Education for providing the leadership to initiate this process and supporting our efforts throughout. I would also like to thank each of the committee members for sacrificing time with their families in order to be an active participant as we developed this plan to support the future of our school district and our students.
With Fraser Pride,
David M. Richards, Ph.D.
