Procedural Support Services

Supporting FCPS in providing special education services and in engaging parents of students with disabilities in a collaborative decision-making process.

Our Procedural Support Services program supports the ability of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) to provide special education services in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and to engage parents of students with disabilities in a collaborative decision-making process.  

Program goals and activities are directly related to IDEA and Section 504 mandates, as well as state requirements that derive from the federal legislation and regulations pertaining to services for students with disabilities in the public schools.

The program provides direct assistance to school-based staff engaged in 504 Plan and Individualized Education Plan (IEP) development and case management; interpretation of and compliance with regulations pertaining to special education; inclusive practices; and other identified school needs.
