Military Family Resources
FCPS is proud to support our military parents/guardians and their students. We hope this page and its sub-pages (viewable on the left side of the screen on the navigation menu) and its resources provide a variety of information that will be helpful to you as a military family.
Military families with students in special education, please make note of an upcoming event on July 29, "Join PEATC, in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Education, for this in-person, interactive, full-day training to explore ways to navigate the special education process and Virginia's services for your Exceptional Family Member. This FREE training empowers participants to effectively advocate for their children while learning ways to collaborate with the school and community where they live."

The following schools below (see for points of contact and letters sent to the schools congratulating them) have received the Virginia Purple Star Designation from the Virginia Department of Education:
The Virginia Purple Star Designation recognizes the three Fredericksburg City Public Schools as military-friendly schools that have demonstrated a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military.
All three schools will receive a coin and certificate to be displayed in the schools.
For any questions about the program at large, contact our division contact;
