Board Selects Dr. Scott Brabrand as finalist

The Fairfax County School Board has selected Dr. Scott Brabrand as the finalist for the position of Superintendent of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), pending final Board approval at its meeting June 8, 2017. Brabrand currently serves as the Superintendent of the Lynchburg City Schools in Lynchburg, Virginia. Brabrand previously worked at FCPS in numerous roles including Assistant Superintendent, principal of Fairfax High School, assistant principal, associate principal, and teacher.

Brabrand was selected as finalist following a nationwide search led by the firm of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA). The Board received input from parents, employees, and the community before candidates were brought forward. The Board initially interviewed candidates in early February before narrowing the field for second interviews. A committee of nineteen staff and community members interviewed semi-finalists and provided feedback to the Board prior to the finalist selection. 

To gather ideas and feedback from the community on the characteristics sought in the new superintendent, an online survey was conducted.  Multiple community forums were held in addition to the survey.  At its February 13, 2017 Work Session HYA presented the School Board the results of the FCPS Community and Leadership Profile Survey
