Challenging Students to Excel

FCPS encourages students to take full advantage of ­challenging learning opportunities and to work hard to realize their academic goals. Homework, quiz, project and test grades enable students to assess their individual progress in each ­subject. Parent-teacher conferences in the fall and spring offer a helpful avenue for gauging student achievement as well as to partner with your child's teacher.
For details about these and other student performance measures, contact your school or see the links on the left of this page.
