From the desk of the superintendent…………………
Welcome to Fairfield Public Schools, a place dedicated to each of our children, devoted to our whole community, defined by our ideals, and providing the finest elementary education. The district is proud to serve and support students from PreK- Grade 6. Our commitments include:
- Preparing students for success.
- Educating the whole child.
- Maintaining strong, supportive, mutually beneficial relationships with schools and other educational partners.
- Providing quality service and value.
We take seriously the opportunity and responsibility we have to help serve the most valuable resource in our nation - our youth. It is the children of our district who inspire the quality of work and service we strive to deliver.
As an educational leader, I strive to create positive parent and teacher relations as well as fostering a child-centered community. With the community’s support, combined with the best professional efforts and practices, academic growth and success can be ensured. Providing every student with a challenging and enriching curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level is a goal I will continue to see is met. I believe in order to give each child the best opportunity and experience for success, we all need to put children first in all that we do. A positive school-community will foster a setting to do what is needed for educating all students. It is my personal commitment to do my best to oversee that each child is stimulated, challenged, and provided with a safe and cultivating experience.
As your Superintendent, you can expect that I will reach out to you for support, suggestions, ideas, and involvement. As we work together, I welcome your input. I have an open-door policy and am always willing to listen to thoughts that will assist in preparing children to be successful. Through teamwork, open communication, and a dedication to continuous improvement, we support a place in which your children can flourish.
As you browse our website, I hope you find it to be a useful resource for information whether you are a prospective family, parent, student or community stakeholder. Working in partnerships, we can create an educational experience that allows for maximum student learning as well as safe and positive social environment for students. A successful home/school partnership is the foundation of our District’s core values and goals. Together we embrace and celebrate the children in our community. We have high expectations for learning for all students; we value the use of technology as a tool to improve and support classroom instruction; we believe that all students will have equal access to strong core academic programs, and we believe that all students can and want to learn.
We look forward to the future with enthusiasm and excitement. We encourage you to join us on our mission to advance the education and skills of all students through active participation, as we strive to be the absolute best school district we are capable of becoming.
Thank you for your interest and support of Fairfield Public Schools. I look forward to working together as partners in learning.
With warm regards,
Susan Ciccotelli, Ed.D
