Fort Wayne Community Schools parents should receive the 2010-11 Student-Parent Handbook in their home this week. The handbook contains information on FWCS programs and services as well as the Student Rights and Responsibilities & Behavior Code in one document. Of special note this year are the school hours and school calendar information on pages 2 and 3, which contain details of the new school hours and the weekly Wednesday delay days. Families who do not receive a copy of the handbook in the mail can request a copy from their child's school.

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. FWCS offers seven magnet schools focusing on areas such as science and math, communication, fine arts or Montessori at the elementary and middle school level. 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.
