Parents will have an opportunity to meet with teachers this week for the fall Parent-Teacher Conferences. Conferences will be held after school Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30-7:30 p.m. at middle and high schools and from 4-8 p.m. at elementary schools. At some schools, students will be leading the conferences, sharing their own work and explaining their data and the progress they are making. Because staff will be working extra hours Wednesday and Thursday, schools will be closed on Friday, Nov. 4. District offices will remain open.

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.
