FCPS Superintendent: Track our progress online

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Fayette County Public Schools Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk is inviting the public to use some new online tools on the district’s website.

From the front page of www.fcps.net, people can track the district’s progress on the 100 strategies in the Superintendent’s Blueprint, access a District Scorecard, and view organizational charts to see how the district office is structured to support schools.

“These tools provide an unprecedented level of transparency to our community. We want all of our stakeholders to be fully aware of and engaged in our efforts to improve the district,” Caulk said. “We hold ourselves to high expectations and we invite our students, employees, families and community to hold us accountable for making Fayette County Public Schools a model district where every child has a pathway to success.”

The “Blueprint for Student Success: Achieving Educational Excellence and Equity for All” outlines 100 specific strategies that the superintendent has identified as priorities in order to improve outcomes for all students during the 2016-17 school year.

The public can view the entire blueprint by clicking on a button on the top left of the school district home page, or use the shortcut www.fcps.net/blueprint. Directly below that link is a button to access the blueprint status tracker.

The status tracker displays whether each strategy is red to indicate no work has been done, yellow to indicate that work is in progress, or green to indicate that the task is complete. It also includes hyperlinks to email the “process owner” – a district administrator who is responsible for implementation, providing a status update, and staying within the budget we will assign to each.

A button for the scorecard has also been added to the front page of the district’s website. The launch today is a blank template so people can see the items that will be monitored. As data becomes available, the scorecard will be updated accordingly. The scorecard includes seven categories: student achievement, student growth and development, college and career readiness, learning culture and environment, family, student, and community engagement, additional academic indicators, and world-class operations.

“We invite our entire community to examine these new tools and share suggestions for improvement,” Caulk said. “Keeping the public in the Fayette County Public Schools is critical if we are to achieve our mission of creating a collaborative community that ensures all students achieve at high levels and graduate prepared to excel in a global society.”
