FCPS Kudos — Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has been named one of 15 first place award winners in the National School Boards Association 2016 Magna Awards competition. FCPS was cited for its #savefcps program on the FY 2017 Budget that solicited community feedback and sought to provide the public with a voice in the budget process. FCPS was one of five first place winners among school districts with over 20,000 students.

    sought to provide the public with a voice in the budget process

    The main role of the public in the budget process, as far as FCPS is concerned, is to badger the county and state for more money. As long as your voice is directed towards that objective, they’re all for it.
