The Missouri Association of School Personnel Administrators (MO-ASPA) recently announced its Human Resources Administrator of the Year, Fort Zumwalt School District Executive Director of Human Resources Erin Williams, center. Williams, who joined the district in 2018, has been integral in helping Fort Zumwalt navigate the tight hiring market of the past few years. From her creativity in recruitment techniques to her willingness to be a resource for the 1,500-plus support staff personnel she serves, Williams has shown a commitment to the Fort Zumwalt community and a relentless positivity about what it means to serve students each and every day. She has been an advocate for those in support staff categories, serving as a voice in improving salaries and work-life balance and striving to recruit the highest caliber candidates she can for the district’s transportation, custodial, student nutrition, clerical and special education departments. Congrats!

#FZSupt September update
If you give a student a cookie, they might enroll in a culinary class. If you teach a student in culinary class: You educate them in math, science, & best practices. You empower them to create, collaborate & problem solve. You equip them to cook at home or go pro. And, when you equip them to cook, they might make you a cookie. Thanks, Hope High Culinary II students!

For the sixth consecutive year, each of Fort Zumwalt School District’s four comprehensive high schools ranks among America’s Best High Schools according to US News & World Report. Of the nearly 18,000 schools ranked, only the top 40 percent earned eligibility to display a U.S. News Best High Schools 2023 badge. U.S. News “Best” badges are widely recognized as symbols of excellence in U.S. education. The rankings are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm. U.S. News doesn’t collect data directly from high schools – all data comes directly from official third-party sources. The national rankings for the four Fort Zumwalt high schools put them in the top 21 percent of high schools in the country. The Best High Schools list is also broken out by state and region. There are almost 800 public high schools in Missouri, US News ranks Fort Zumwalt South, West, East and North in the Top 44.

S/O and thank you to our community partners Compass Health and our team in Student Services and Health Services. In three short days they pulled together our first immunization clinic for #FZSD families. School nurses, administrators and district interpreters helped get the word out to families in need, almost 30 of whom were able to get student immunizations updated at the clinic, free of charge. Families were in and out of the clinic in about 15 minutes, and were so thankful for the service. Thank you Compass Health! #FZEquipToExcel #FZCommunity
