Maintaining the buildings in Fort Wayne Community Schools is an important component of meeting the district’s goals. Academics are supported by suitable buildings. FWCS buildings are strong anchors in neighborhoods and serve families throughout the community, and being fiscally responsible requires these assets be maintained. Our children deserve well-maintained facilities that meet today’s educational needs.
