Group Description

SpecialEdFairfax is the discussion group for parents of any child who has a disability and receives special education services in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). SpecialEdFairfax is affiliated with the Fairfax Alliance for Appropriate Public Education (FAAPE).

On SpecialEdFairfax we share ideas on how to best serve students in our local school communities and discussing special education issues which affect services in FCPS. Members may use this group to send out information on workshops, legislative updates and other announcements of interest to the parents of students with disabilities. Members are welcome to also discuss topics of particular interest.
