FCPS to Host Town Hall on TJHSST Admissions September 23
Join Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Superintendent Scott S. Brabrand at a virtual town hall from 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 23, to hear feedback on his proposed changes to the admissions policy at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST).
The Superintendent will be joined by TJHSST admissions director Jeremy Shughart and Leona Vance-Smith, director of equity and family engagement, to take questions and hear community input on the proposal.
The discussion will center around efforts to increase diversity at the school while maintaining high admissions standards as presented by Brabrand last week. Read the report online. The proposed changes will not eliminate merit-based admissions but are intended to address the racial and economic disparities at TJ along with an overreliance on the current admissions test.
