Fort Recovery Local Schools: An exemplary school district adding value for all students.

About Our District
Fort Recovery Local is a small school district that takes pride in the past, present, and future. Our students and staff work hard to be one of the top schools in the state of Ohio. Educating around one-thousand students, our small, family-oriented district relies on a strong community to perform at high levels.
The mission of the Fort Recovery Local School District is to create a culture of collective responsibility to add value for all students through academic rigor and best instructional practices in a safe, caring, learning environment.

1. We believe the school shares the value of and is the heart of the community.
2. We believe that timely and regular communication is vital to our success as a district.
3. We believe in providing diverse and multiple opportunities in the area of co-curricular and extra-curricular to all students.
4. We believe the staff and students need to possess the agility to be prepared for the unknown.

Continuous Improvement Plan
Goal 1: All stakeholders (students, staff, parents, businesses and community) will be highly involved in creating a safe, supportive, caring environment reflective of community values.
Goal 2: Empower all students to achieve their goals through a high quality education.
