As a result of the change in operating procedures for Fairfax County Public Schools due to COVID-19, the Retirement Ceremony scheduled to be held April 29, 2020 has been canceled.

Retirees who submitted their retirement HR2 by April 15, 2020 with a retirement date through December 31, 2020, will be sent a retirement gift and commemorative program to their home in the coming months. Retirees who submit their retirement HR2 after April 15 will be invited to the 2021 ceremony.

We Honor You is the formal FCPS retirement event. FCPS holds a reception and ceremony to recognize the service of our retiring employees. This catered event is held at one of our centrally located schools and is attended by the retirees along with their family and friends, members of the FCPS Leadership Team, and School Board. Each retiree is formally recognized during the ceremony; they have a brief profile read about them by a member of the Leadership Team as they receive their retirement gift and pose for a professional picture with the Superintendent. As they return to their seat, they are congratulated personally by members of the FCPS School Board.
