FCFT’s Recommendations to Improve ESY Staffing

July 8th, 2021


This year we have seen unprecedented challenges to staffing FCPS’ Extended School Year (ESY) program. While the challenges seen this year have been magnified by the increased demand, issues have always existed in the process of staffing ESY that have created a chaotic and frustrating experience for those applying to work in the program. Fairfax County Federation of Teachers is a solution-driven union, and while the majority of our members are currently off-contract and are under no obligation to take on voluntary additional work assignments, we all want what is best for students and want to see the ESY program successful. We firmly believe that FCPS must consider feedback from stakeholders, especially special education staff and those with experience working in ESY when deciding how to move forward. We conducted a survey to gather feedback on possible solutions that FCPS can implement this summer to address ESY staffing shortages as well as ideas for improving the program for the future.
