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.

Inclusive Schools Week

Fairfax County Public Schools celebrated Inclusive Schools Week during the week of December 6-10, 2021. This year’s theme is “Rebuilding our Inclusive Community Together.” This theme recognizes the importance and need for a greater appreciation for inclusion, as a philosophy and as a way of life in our schools and community.
