Superintendent Search

Learn about FCPS' process for finding a new superintendent.

Fairfax County Public Schools is beginning its search for a new superintendent to lead the school district when Superintendent Brabrand's contract expires at the end of the 2021-22 school year. 

The Fairfax County School Board is charged with hiring the new superintendent. To assist with the search, the Board will engage a search firm with expertise in identifying and recruiting executive level school district leaders. 

There will be opportunities for parents, staff, students, and community members to participate. Your voice will be critical in helping define leadership characteristics, qualities, and qualifications of our next superintendent. 

We will post updates regarding the hiring process, timeline, community engagement, and other important information on this webpage. We will also share updates via other methods of communication including email, newsletters, and social media.
