Defining the role of all FCPS staff members in living the commitment to our staff, students, and community
In Fairfax County Public Schools, our business is about making a difference—in the lives of Fairfax families, employees, and the community we serve. This strategic plan was created to Ignite the hearts and minds of the community to ensure that every student receives the best possible education, preparing them for their best possible futures.

Ignite, our Strategic Plan, and four goals define the role of all FCPS staff members in living the commitment to our staff, students, and community. Each year, the School Board is updated on the four Ignite goals, which include:
We commit to reaching, challenging, and preparing every student for success in school and life.
We commit to fostering a responsive, caring, and inclusive culture where all feel valued, supported, and hopeful.
We commit to investing in our employees, encouraging innovation, and celebrating success.
We commit to championing the needs of our school communities and being responsible stewards of the public's investment.
Fairfax County Public Schools inspires and empowers students to meet high academic standards; lead healthy, ethical lives; and be responsible and innovative global citizens.
