During its regular business meeting on December 5, the School Board conducted a public hearing on the acquisition of property located at 6245 Leesburg Pike by condemnation or other means. The Board also adopted a resolution approving the proposed public use of the property as an elementary school. The Board also approved the 2014-2015 School Calendar and reviewed the annual monitoring performance report on Student Achievement Goal 1: Pursue Academic Excellence.
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Superintendent Karen Garza invites employees, parents, and citizens to share ideas on ways to make the Fairfax County school system the very best it can be. Please share your idea here.
