School Calendar Survey Open Through Nov. 29th

Thank you in advance for your assistance as Falls Church City Public Schools works to improve how we serve our students, families, and community. We appreciate your time.

Effective July 1, 2019, the General Assembly passed legislation allowing school divisions to start the school year up to 14 days before the September Labor Day holiday. Previously school divisions were required to apply for a waiver from the Virginia Department of Education, which is no longer required under the law. School divisions must still meet the state's 180 school day minimum requirement but now have more flexibility regarding school calendars.

The purpose of this survey is to learn more about the perceptions FCCPS stakeholders have regarding this change and when they feel the school year should start.

The deadline to complete this survey is November 29th at 6:00 p.m. EST

Please note, any potential change will NOT impact the current 2019-2020 school year calendar. Again, thank you for participating in this survey.
