Fairfax County School Board
The Fairfax County School Board recognizes that, as an elected Board, it represents and serves the people of the county. To fulfill it obligations, the Board designed a governing process that allows for the freedom and authority to do its work, but also has full accountability for the results of its decisions. That governing process is outlined in the Strategic Governance Manual, which was revised in 2015.
The Governance Manual includes the Board’s student achievement goals (expected performance outcomes for students) and operational expectations in areas such as human resources, financial planning, technology and more.
