Fairfax County Supervisors Must Fully Fund Our Public Schools!

Fairfax County Supervisors Must Fully Fund Our Public Schools!

We, the undersigned, call upon Chairman Sharon Bulova and the Fairfax County Supervisors to fully fund Fairfax County Public Schools.

Why is this important?

Our public schools are our crown jewels – the reason so many of us live and do business in Fairfax County. We are concerned that our quality of life and our children’s future will substantially degrade if we do not maintain public schools.

The Alliance for Fairfax Public Schools is a partnership of parents, students, and civic organizations including the Fairfax Education Association, Fairfax County Council of PTAs, and Fairfax County Federation of Teachers. Our purpose is to tell the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors that they must meet the needs of our schools and students.

Our schools are bursting at the seams, talented teachers are leaving, and already large class sizes could get even bigger. The Supervisors must make our schools the priority!

How it will be delivered

Signatures from petitions will be presented to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. We will inform signers of opportunities to get involved in the budget process.


Reasons for signing

  • #savefcps we need education
  • I'm a product of FCPS, and I'm proud of it - Fairfax County Public Schools need to continue to be a shining example of how public education should work! Every dollar counts - don't cut their funding!
  • When we returned from 6 years overseas, we bought a home in Fairfax County because of he reputation of the schools. Already the class sizes are getting too large and teachers are complaining of being overtaxed. We need to stop the decline asap.
