THIS IS A FREE PETITION You are asked for a donation but as long as you see "your signature has been recorded" you are good, NO NEED TO DONATE!!! 


Sign our petition to let the Fairfax County Public School Board (FCPS), the FCPS Superintendent, and the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors know that there are many parents in our community who value and support the opportunity for our children to learn a second language. Elementary foreign language immersion and FLES (Foreign Language in the Elementary School) programs are often the first to be “at risk” among many other important programs during tough budget times.  

FCPS’s nationally-recognized schools make this county a special place to live and are a defining feature that attracts community members and businesses to Fairfax County. We believe it is critical to work to PRESERVE and EXPAND top-notch FCPS programs, not only for our children, but for the continued vitality of Fairfax County's economy and property values. If you are a parent, student, alumni or concerned community member living in or out of Fairfax County, please join us in our mission to keep FCPS one of the nation’s best school systems that will continue to offer innovative, global and progressive programs to benefit our students -- our future leaders.
