Students will not be in school on Monday, Feb. 8, as high school teachers spend the day in professional development, and elementary and middle school teachers participate in parent-teacher conferences. This day was set aside as a non-student day when the calendar was established last year and is not connected to the Super Bowl.

With nearly 30,000 students, Fort Wayne Community Schools is one of the largest school districts in Indiana. FWCS proudly allows families to choose any of its 50 schools through its successful school-choice program creating diversity in each school, including some with more than 75 languages spoken.

In high school, students can choose from the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, Project Lead the Way or New Tech Academy as well as other rigorous academic and specialty training programs.
