This statement was finalized at the October 2016 Board meeting:

The Fontana J8 Board of Education has identified the following areas of focus for the next five years. Once adopted, specific goals will be identified and action plans created.

Communication
We will focus on communicating regularly with our families and the wider community regarding what the Board does and how they can get involved.

Early Childhood Education
We will focus on integrating our new preschool program with our 4K and 5K classes to deliver a seamless early childhood program.

Measures of Success
Given the constantly-changing nature of the report cards issued by the state, we will focus on developing our own district-level report card, so that we can identify and report on the outcomes and measures that are most important to the community.

Teacher Development
We will focus on recruiting and retaining amazing teachers, providing them with the training and support they need to continue to grow in their profession.
