Anti-Racism, Anti-Bias Curriculum Policy Survey
Provide input on the development of a new curriculum policy
May 6, 2021
Dear FCPS Families and Community,
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is committed to realizing a vision of educational equity in which every FCPS student thrives academically, socially, and emotionally and is empowered as the next generation of change leaders for a more just world.
One key strategy to achieve educational equity is to analyze and address the beliefs and policies that inform teaching practices along with what is taught in schools. FCPS will begin by revising the existing Controversial Issues Policy and developing a new Anti-Racism, Anti-Bias Education Curriculum Policy.
We believe that hearing from all stakeholders (students, families, educators, and community) and collecting their input will support more inclusive and equitable curriculum policies. We are working with The Leadership Academy to support the revision and development of the two curriculum policies.
We invite you to participate in a survey to provide input on the development of the curriculum policy.
Please click to take the survey.
The survey opens May 6 and will close on May 16.
We welcome and encourage your participation as we shape critical policy around student success and our caring culture. If you have additional questions regarding our policy work and to access the survey, please visit the Anti-Racism, Anti-Bias Education Policy web page.
As a part of the process, the Leadership Academy is also conducting a series of focus groups to gather the perspectives and input of all stakeholders.
The input from the survey and the focus groups will help inform the policy development. The information will be shared with the Fairfax County School Board this summer.
Working together, we can build a vision of educational equity for every child by name and by need.
Thank you for your participation.
Scott S. Brabrand, Superintendent
