Fairfax County School Board Votes to Extend Superintendent’s Contract

December 18, 2020

The Fairfax County School Board has voted to extend the contract of Superintendent Scott S. Brabrand until June 30, 2022. His contract was scheduled to expire on July 10, 2021. 

Brabrand was confirmed by the previous School Board in June 2017.  His initial contract ran from July 10, 2017 to July 10, 2021. The Board voted to amend the current contract to end on December 30, 2020 and to issue a new contract that will run from January 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.

“After extensive discussion, the Board has decided to offer Superintendent Brabrand an extension to his contract through the end of the 2021-22 school year,” said School Board Chair Ricardy Anderson. “This will support continuity of leadership as we emerge from the current pandemic.”

“I appreciate the opportunity to continue my tenure at FCPS with the support of the School Board,” said Brabrand. “During this period, I pledge to continue to put students first and to prioritize safety for all students, teachers, and staff members.”

Brabrand began his career in FCPS as a high school social studies teacher.  He served as an assistant and associate principal, principal, and cluster assistant superintendent before being named superintendent of Lynchburg City Schools in 2012.
