Enrollment, Capacity, Expansion Task Force


Supplemental Information


About the Enrollment, Capacity, Expansion Task Force
Fredericksburg is a vibrant and diverse city to live and work. As a result, the City is growing, and schools are becoming more crowded. The City and Fredericksburg City Public Schools have created the Enrollment, Capacity and Expansion (ECE) Task Force. While maintaining the focus on what is best for the children of Fredericksburg, the task force has been established to analyze instructional needs, enrollment projections, facility capacity, and expansion options for Fredericksburg City Public Schools (FCPS).

The task force will collaborate with community stakeholders to make recommendations to City Council and the School Board. Additional considerations may include: Safety and Security, Risk Management, CTE/Work Force Development, Technology Infrastructure, Community Connections, Early Childhood Programs, Sustainable Design and Exterior Spaces.

The task force is committed to seeking public input on options to solve capacity issues. Two community dialogues will be held to gather feedback from residents. The meetings will feature an overview presentation of the capacity issues and an opportunity to dialogue in small groups on the issues. Residents are encouraged to attend.

In addition to the community dialogues, residents will be invited to complete a short survey that will provide city and school leaders with important feedback. Residents will be able to access the survey beginning January 27, 2020 from both the school and city websites. Community dialogue feedback and survey responses will be shared at an upcoming ECE Task Force Meeting.
