A Message from Our Superintendent

Dear FPS Community,

Much of my time and energy over the past few of months has gone toward addressing our district budget and advocating with state legislators during this year’s short legislative session. In March I visited each school in the district. It was so refreshing for me to be in the hallways, classrooms, gymnasiums, cafeterias, and playgrounds of our schools. There is incredible work happening and I am both proud and grateful for the time and investment that each FPS staff member puts in.  

As we continue to go through the process of making adjustments for the 2024-25 school year, I am reminded of the great work happening in schools and departments across our district, and the great people that make up this organization.  

With gratitude and appreciation of our staff, students, and community,

Lance Goodpaster, 
FPS Mission: Every student thrives on their path to graduation and beyond.
