Fairfax County Public Schools began airing a public service ad that encourages local businesses and community groups to express their interest in partnering with the school system by using the FCPS Partnership Starter. The online tool, which is unique to FCPS, matches potential partners with schools, or an FCPS office or program.
The Partnership Starter features a short questionnaire that takes about five minutes to complete. View the PSA below, then try the Partnership Starter

This year Fairfax County Public Schools and the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation established four new partnerships, all in the Lee High School Pyramid. On October 14th, select Lee High students ventured to FedEx Field for the Annual 4th and Life Forum. At the forum, students had the opportunity to listen to Washington players Darrel Young, Shawn Lauvao, Tyler Polumbus, and Akeem Davis who shared their experiences from high school to the NFL of balancing family, school, work and high intensity football. The players also discussed the importance of envisioning life and a career after football and developing and maintaining a moral compass for success in life. Thank you to the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation for supporting Fairfax County Public Schools.
Hutchison Elementary School, now in its fifth year as partner with Time Warner Cable, has been the recipient of about $200,000 in donations from the company -- not including the many volunteer hours that Time Warner Cable employees provide to the school.
In December 2014 the company gave another $28,000 to the school to support their partnership including a dynamic Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) lab.
Time Warner is Cable and their Connect a Million Minds program makes for an exceptional partner. Thank you for your support.
