Superintendent's Message

September 2018

Dear Fife School District Community,

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! Once again, the year is off to a great start at each of our schools. Staff and students have settled in and learning opportunities can be seen everywhere!

As we enter the 2018-2019 school year, our district is in a fabulous position because of the support of our community! Last February the voters of Fife, Milton and Edgewood approved a $176.3 million bond proposal that will allow the district to address our continued growth in student enrollment, as well as our aging facilities on some of our campuses.

First order of business is to start the replacement process of Surprise Lake Middle School. As you probably know, replacing a school is a long process. We are looking forward to engaging our students, staff and community as we enter into the design and construction process. SLMS is scheduled to be completed before the 2022 school year.

Other components of the Bond Program include; the addition of a fourth elementary school, an addition to Fife High School and infrastructure and safety and security upgrades at all of our schools. We are happy to be partnering with Construction Services Group (CSG) as our Construction and Project Managers for all projects contained within our Bond Program. For updated information on any of our construction projects please click here.

In other areas of the district, we were very happy this summer to add some very talented administrators, teachers and support staff to our school teams! In Fife, place a high priority on the hiring process and value our ability to retain quality staff members year after year. So much so, that we have included this element in our District Strategic Plan. You can see all aspects of the plan by clicking here.

Last, we are as committed as ever to providing our students with a well rounded educational experience that helps to prepare them for life after their K-12 journey in Fife Public Schools. Together we can provide access, break down barriers, support and encourage innovation in thinking and provide a high quality education for all of our 3700 students!

My door is open and I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about any aspects of the district. Thank you for your continued support of our students and staff and cheers to another great school year!
