Please sign up to speak at the first FCPS School Board Meeting of the year, Thursday, August 31st, at 7 pm.
Our suggested theme –
“FCPS must systematically and intentionally include and welcome traditionally excluded students, staff and families – Black, POC, Disabled, Queer, LGBTQIA, immigrant, and those with intersecting marginalized identities deserve and insist we be given full access to the curriculum and at seat at the table where policies affecting us are shaped and decisions made. Nothing about us without us.”

People can choose to speak in-person, virtually, or via prerecorded video, but once the choice has been made it can’t be changed.. You will know if you have a spot within a few hours.
