Reopening F-M Schools

Fayetteville-Manlius School District 2020-21 School Reopening Plan. Reopening advisory committees with representation from all stakeholder groups helped shape the reopening plan, which is based on all available guidance from state and public health agencies. For updated COVID-19 information from the school district, including important notices, learning and childcare resources, and food distribution plans, please go to this page.

Parent Council

Parent Council is a forum for Fayetteville-Manlius School District parents to meet informally with the superintendent and other district staff to discuss topics relevant to its students. The sessions are informal and open, and parents are an integral part of discussions that occur.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the six scheduled meetings will be divided into two halves; a group of three meetings earmarked as community focus groups and another set of three meetings dedicated as superintendent coffees.

Focus Groups will serve as standing “community focus groups” where the members of Parent Council will be called upon to provide feedback to school officials on such topics as school facilities, instructional programming and the school budget.

Superintendent Coffees will be informal gatherings to address any parent-generated concerns that once were the domain of parent advisory committees. These former advisory committees addressed parent concerns in athletics, special education and gifted and talented/enrichment instruction.

Parent Council meets in a casual, informative and parent-friendly setting. There are no required committees to join or projects to complete – other than just sharing information in an effort to promote two-way communication between home and school. Please join Parent Council and become better-informed about what’s happening throughout the school district.

When are meetings?

Meetings are typically held from 9 to 11 a.m. on the first of each month (when the first of the calendar month falls during the work week) throughout the school year in the F-M District Office Conference Room, 8199 E. Seneca Turnpike, Manlius. This will permit meeting dates to rotate throughout the work week in order to accommodate as many people as possible.

Please call 315-692-1234 for directions or more information.
