FY 2021 Budget Priorities

Through their union, the Fairfax County Federation of Teachers, Fairfax County educators have been hard at work researching the long-standing problems that affect our school system as well as potential solutions. FCFT is now releasing several documents that will help our county address these issues.

FCFT FY21 Budget Priorities

We urge the School Board to make the following changes to the proposed FY 2021 budget to improve public education in Fairfax County to better serve our educators, students and community.

FCFT Planning Time Survey Results

Only 5.1% of elementary teachers and 12.1% of secondary teachers report that they can consistently complete the required duities of their job within the current amount of planning time built into their schedule.

Salary and Pension Comparison to Surrounding Counties

Fairfax County Public Schools pays tens of thousands of dollars less than surrounding school divisions in late career salary and pension over an employee's lifetime.
