Mr. GiaQuinta serves on the FWCS board because, "I believe that there is no more important issue than providing a level of public education that prepares students for a productive life within their families and within their community. I have dedicated my effort as a Board Member to improve the quality of the education offered by FWCS and to eliminate the achievement gap at a high level. I believe that our students' happiness and the strength of our democratic institutions depend upon our ability to succeed in this endeavor. I believe that this can only be achieved by working constructively with the Administration, Teaching Professionals, Parents and Students. I believe that FWCS has accomplished much but that there is much left to do to reach our objectives.
