Leading the Pack and Forging New Ground

Fairfield High is leading the pack and forging new ground. At our second round IPR meeting last week we discussed many things. A theme that continued to come up no matter what we were talking about was the integration of technology at FHS. It is clear that we have a "critical mass" in terms of EdTech @FHS. To date we have sent 33 teachers to attend a GAFE, Google Apps for Education, Summit. The outcome of the summits have been plentiful: two different Tech Slams at staff meetings, Twitter challenges for both teachers and students, 95%+ implementation of Google Classroom, and many colleague to colleague how to's and collaborative discussions on how to change the face of instruction.

What we are seeing at FHS doesn't happen everywhere. It is happening here because the teachers truly believe in adapting and delivering instruction in such a way that is engaging, creative, and stimulating for students. It is happening here because teachers feel safe to take risks and try new things.

We are now embarking on new ground. Yesterday more than half of the 9th grade class received their 1:1 personal Chromebook. By Thursday of this week every single 9th grader on our campus will have his/her own Chromebook to use at school and at home. As a site we will continue to work together collaboratively to ensure that the instruction that is delivered follows the SAMR model. We want to ensure that the Ed Tech integration is not just Substitution or Augmentation, but that it is Modifying curriculum/delivery and ultimately Redefining how the material is delivered/taught.

As Falcons we are not afraid to lead the pack and forge new ground. We embrace new ideas and accept the challenges that are placed in front of us. We are determined to ensure success for ALL of our students. I am truly proud to be a FALCON!!









Our ONE goal: To graduate every Fairfield High Student and to ensure that they leave FHS college and career ready!!! 
Inspire, Engage, Excite, Lead, Foster, Create, Empower!!


Many more great things are in store for Fairfield High!

Continue to be innovative, creative, and a model of excellence!


HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!
