After four years of their term on the FCPS school board, our children are doing much worse, not better.  Standardized test scores are down, enrollment and teacher retention are down, behavior issues have increased, yet costs have skyrocketed.  They doubled their own salaries, yet leave our hard working teachers not earning enough to justify the tougher conditions of their positions.  Please consider the results of their "service" before casting your ballots!  


Fairfax County Parents Association is a nonpartisan volunteer grassroots organization of parents that seeks to ensure students are the first priority in Fairfax County Public Schools.  This is accomplished by educating parents about the governance and administration of the school system and empowering parents to advocate on behalf of their children.  We seek to ensure the school board is governed in accordance with the law, specifically that the roles are non-partisan.  The FCPA will work to support teachers and staff of the school system to aid their efforts to educate our children.



The Fairfax County Parents Association (“FCPA”) represents a wide cross-section of Fairfax County families who have a deep interest in the quality of education in Fairfax County Public Schools. As parents, we want to be actively engaged in improving FCPS’s commitment to providing all students from all backgrounds with a high-quality education focused on strong academics that prepares students for success later in life. As adults in the community, our job is to ensure that the best interests of children and students come first.

We encourage parents to be advocates for their children.  To that end, parents will disagree on some issues as they pertain to their circumstances.  However, our bipartisan group can find common ground on many issues that are vital to our children’s education.  Among the key issues for FCPA are:
