Introduction and Purpose

About Our District

The Fox Point-Bayside School District serves approximately 950 students in four-year-old kindergarten through eighth grade in its two schools. About 550 students attend Stormonth Elementary School,  7301 N. Longacre Road, Fox Point,  and around 400 students attend Bayside Middle School, 601 Ellsworth Lane, Bayside.  Our district has a minority population of approximately 19% and we also participate in the Chapter 220 Program.  Our enrollment has been relatively stable over the years.  Our district has a 9% economically disadvantaged student population, as measured by free and reduced lunch status.  Our students typically perform above average on state and district level assessments.  Our district offers services for students with special needs, who encompass approximately 10% of our student population. 

The district has five administrators:  Superintendent of Schools; Director of Business Services; Director of Teaching, Learning, and Assessment; Elementary School Principal; and Middle School Principal.  The district also has a Coordinator of Special Education and a Coordinator of Technology.  The district also has 79 teachers (some who have part-time status) and 25 support staff members who include paraprofessionals and administrative assistants. 

The district is made up of two communities.  Bayside has a population just over 4500 people and Fox Point has a population just over 7000.  The district is a high property tax area, but there is a broad cross-section of socio-economic levels within our district borders. 

The Fox Point-Bayside School District has a long history of academic excellence with an emphasis on instilling positive behaviors and attitudes as part of a strong foundational education. 

During the 2012-13 school year, the district engaged in strategic planning through a school community planning forum.  For a summary of the School Community Planning Forum Visioning and Planning, please visit School Community Planning Forum Summary .  From this process, district's mission, vision, and goals were developed.
