FCPS believes in work/life balance, and strives to provide its employees with a variety of health and wellbeing options through the Strategic Plan, Aspirational Goal 5.

Aspirational Goal 5: FCPS will promote a culture fostering wellness and civility for students and staff.

Priority 9: FCPS will promote and maintain a safe and respectful environment.

Priority 10: FCPS will foster personal well-being and health among students and staff through increased awareness and engagement on these topics.

Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is crucial to living a higher quality of life. Wellness matters because it helps lower health care costs, create a sense of community, and a healthier work culture. Healthier employees lead to better attendance and increased productivity, lower healthcare costs, and ultimately a healthier you!
