Fairfax County Public Schools Family Engagement Survey Results

School Year 2018-19

For the first time, Fairfax County Public Schools conducted a division-wide Family Engagement Survey.  The survey was administered March 24 – April 12, 2019 to all families with students in grades K-12.  

All families in FCPS were asked to provide their feedback on their engagement at their child’s school to address the following topics: 

  • Welcoming environment
  • Communication
  • Student success
  • Advocacy
  • Family and school partnerships
  • Collaboration with the community

We are proud that families in FCPS reported: 

  • Ninety-two percent feel my school welcomes families of different backgrounds and cultures.
  • Ninety-one percent feel welcome at my child’s school. 
  • Ninety-one percent feel my child feels safe at school. 
  • Ninety-one percent feel information provided to me is easy to understand. 
  • Eighty-nine percent feel my school is safe.

The feedback provided will help FCPS strengthen family engagement and continue to foster a Caring Culture throughout FCPS.
