From the Superintendent
I am pleased to share with you the Fayetteville-Manlius Central School District’s 2021-22 Annual Report. This report is intended to give our stakeholders a snapshot of our district and the progress we have made in the past school year on the goals and objectives identified in our 2021-24 Strategic Plan.
I am proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff and the district overall as we continued to navigate the challenges of educating the students amidst the COVID-19 global pandemic. Our
strategic plan served as our guide as we launched new initiatives, completed capital project work and forged new relationships and partnerships while recognizing the importance of fiscal responsibility.
Our four priority areas of teaching and learning, positive school environment,
service learning and community partnerships, and fiscal capacity and responsibility were at the forefront of all we accomplished. Each area has its own goals and objectives at the district and building levels, and they serve as the foundation to support our mission and vision for the district, which is to inspire students and promote personal success. Some of the plan’s goals are intended to be achieved within one school year. Others may span over multiple years. At the end of each academic year, our administrative team reviews our progress with their faculty members and then updates the plan as necessary.
In the pages that follow, we have captured highlights of the strategic plan work that took place during the 2021-22 school year. We hope that you will give us your feedback on how you feel the district is doing and where you feel there is room for improvement so that we can continue to update our plan annually to focus on the areas of greatest needs.
Our school district is a reflection of the community that it serves and as such, it is important that we hear from you on what we are doing well and where we need to improve. To make it easy for you to reach us at your convenience, we have created an online survey that can be accessed via the district website home page or by scanning the QR code on this page.
If you don’t have access to the internet, please feel free to reach me directly at 315-692-1200 to request a paper copy of the survey.
We will continue to follow the path our strategic plan has created for us and look forward to your input, which will help shape the journey for our students and staff as we move forward.

Return to F-M Tradition
By June, the federal, state and local COVID-19 restrictions that prohibited F-M High School’s traditional graduation ceremony in 2021 were lifted. On June 17, commencement returned to the SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus, and the wearing of face masks was optional for ceremony participants and guests.
The Class of 2022 had 319 candidates for graduation, and the senior with the highest grade point average, Andrew Ahn, and Class of 2022 Senior Class President Hannah Faigle both spoke during the ceremony. Other speakers included Superintendent Craig J. Tice and F-M High School Spanish language teacher Christine Monaco, who the students selected to speak.
Inspiring students and promoting student success.
