There's no wrong way to PTA. Our work touches every aspect of public education for all families.
Some of the issues and groups we focus on are highlighted below with a focus on groups like military families and students who receive special education services.
HOW WE PTA
Curriculum, testing, Advanced Academics Program, Title I Schools, literacy, graduation rates, technical education, early education, and more.
Almost 30,000 students in FCPS are students with disabilities. We're proud to include the Fairfax County SEPTA (Special Education PTA) as one of our local units. Learn more about SEPTA, and our work to support families receiving special education.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
PTA is an organization that recognizes and values diversity and strives to both be an equitable organization and actively advocate for equity.
Fairfax County hosts many military families from all branches of the service. Learn more about our efforts to honor and support these families, and resources to do the same in your local unit.
HEALTH, WELLNESS & SAFETY
Keeping children in our district safe, healthy, and thriving is a key focus area. Learn more about our work in these areas.
"Whole Child" refers to an approach in education that ensures each child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. This is defined by the policies, practices and relationships in the school and school community.
