Military Families: Preparing your Move from Fairfax County

Information for withdrawing from Fairfax County schools and requesting educational records.

FCPS understands that our military-connected students and families may live in the community for a short time.  FCPS strives to make your transition out of FCPS as smooth as possible.  

  • FCPS maintains student records in compliance with laws in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the federal government. The withdrawal of students from school falls under these compliance laws and policies within FCPS.
  • Unofficial educational records may be requested at your school. Schools will satisfy the request within 10 working days.  
  • Every installation has a Military School Liaison Officer who serves all military-connected families. School Liaison Officers of US Army Garrison Fort Belvoir serve all military-connected families living in Fairfax County and will connect you with the School Liaison Officer at your next installation.
  • If you have additional questions or concerns please contact Family and School Partnerships
