History[edit]

The Quincy Public Schools first superintendent was Francis W. Parker. F. W. Parker Elementary School was named after him.

Starting on June 8, 2007, the teachers of the Quincy Public Schools began to strike because of pay cuts and health benefit cuts. The strike ended after nearly a week of deadlock, when the courts ruled the strike to be illegal. The teachers were told by court officials that they would be fined $150,000 dollars per day if they didn't stop immediately. They stopped, but not without making their complaints heard. The strike caused the final day of school to be delayed, postponing graduation ceremonies and various other events.
