Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is the largest school system in the Commonwealth of Virginia and 10th largest school system in the United State with a total enrollment of 188,000 students. FCPS also has one of the largest school bus fleets in the nation with over 1600 buses that transfer over 130,000 students daily.

FCPS has a student population as diverse as the nation. It is important that the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County School Board continues to provide invest comprehensively in the entire school system to ensure that all students are prepared for success and are ready to compete in the global economy. It is also important for PTA members and interested stakeholders to be aware of PTA’s legislative priorities, legislative programs for each year, develop relationships with their local policymakers, advocate on behalf of their students, schools, and school system, galvanize other members to advocate, and participate in PTA activities to become better leaders and advocates. PTAs/PTSAs cannot endorse political candidates, but they can absolutely support, oppose, and otherwise fight for issues supported by the National PTA to ensure the education, health, and safety for every child.
