Inclusive Education

Inclusion embodies the values and practices that support the right of every student, regardless of ability, to access and participate in their school and community.

Inclusive experiences for children with and without disabilities and their families create a sense of belonging and membership, positive social relationships and friendships, and development and learning to reach their full potential.

Our students have the same access to academic, non-academic, extra-curricular, and community activities and educational settings as their nondisabled peers, whenever appropriate.

Fairfax County Public Schools celebrated Inclusive Schools Week during the week of December 2-6, 2019. This year’s theme was “Charting the Course for Inclusive Schools.” This theme provided FCPS schools with the opportunity to think about their current philosophies and practices regarding inclusion and to plan for “next steps” in the process.
