We are committed to providing each and every student a high quality educational experience. Fairless is the community where we choose to learn, live, work, and grow! 

Here are several highlights from the 2022-2023 school year:

  • Curriculum studies, pilots, and adoptions continued to be a focus as we strengthened our core instruction.
  • 95% Core Phonics curriculum was implemented as a pilot in 2nd grade. We will expand and implement this phonics curriculum in grades K-3 this school year.
  • All staff members received professional development that was aligned to our continuous improvement plan.
  • Staff members within their first four years in education, participated in the Resident Educator Program which provided them with ongoing support and mentoring.
  • Summer learning programs continued outdoors at Camp Wanake with approximately 80 students in grades 1-6. The summer camp focused on literacy, math, and social-emotional learning.
  • The District Leadership Team (DLT) was restructured and focused on creating the new Fairless 1 Plan.
  • The Fairless 1 Plan was created to guide our work for the next three years. We will focus on the following five vision areas
