Schools prepare to welcome students for new year

Schools prepare to welcome students for new year

School may not start for another week, but teachers and staff have been busy getting ready for the big day.

That means prior to Aug. 9 nearly 300 teachers, including 31 new ones, are decorating classrooms, coming back from professional development seminars, boning up on the newest teaching tools and generally rolling out the welcome mat.

About 3,600 students are enrolled in Fluvanna County Public Schools for the 2018-19 school year.

Those students will benefit from technology upgrades such as Promethean Panels (interactive flat screens) in the classroom and 1,100 new Chromebooks.

Superintendent Chuck Winkler knows the hard work will pay off.

“First, I would like to welcome our new staff members, and I look forward to personally thanking them for joining our Fluco team,” Winkler said in an email. ”As a system, we have been working hard over the last few months across the curriculum. We have also added a wealth of technology in an effort to meet our students’ ever-changing needs. It is our goal that every Fluco will be able to unlock their full potential and obtain the skills that will allow them to be successful in all of their future endeavors.”

As Winkler said, it’s not just teachers preparing for the first day of school.

Mechanics have been readying buses. In all, 65 bus drivers are learning their routes. Support staff have buffed, polished, painted and scrubbed so the buildings are gleaming. New carpet was installed in the kindergarten wing of West Central Primary. Carysbrook’s roof has been repaired and lighting upgrades installed in all buildings.
