Significantly Exceeds Expectations by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. 

Like most school districts in the state, our revenue  has not kept up with expenses in the Fox point – Bayside School District.  It simply costs more money each year, to provide a top notch education for each student.    As you may know your District was recently recognized as Significantly Exceeds Expectations by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.  There were only nine districts in the state to receive this recognition. We want to continue to attract quality educators and families that support their schools to your  FPBS community. We want to continue to invest in the technology that prepares our students to be 21st Century leaners and productive workers.  The District has avoided having to make cuts to programs and been able to expand technology greatly due to financial support the Education Foundation has provided.  

--Dr. Vance Dalzin- District Administrator
