Share your thoughts with SEPTA and National PTA at Family-School Partnerships Listening Sessions

Background photo shows a paper chain of 10 people of various sizes and shapes. At the top is the text "Family-School Partnership Listening Sessions." At the bottom appear the logos for The Center for Family Engagement, Fairfax County SEPTA, and National PTA.

Fairfax County Special Education PTA (SEPTA) is hosting virtual focus groups to discuss National PTA’s Standards for Family-School Partnerships. Share your experiences and your perspectives on family-school partnerships.

 How do you want to engage with your child’s school? 

What are the most important parts of a parent-educator relationship?

How can power and decision-making be effectively shared between families and schools?

Your feedback will be used to make family-school partnerships more inclusive and impactful in FCPS. National PTA will also use your feedback to inform a set of National Standards for family-school partnerships nationwide.

Sessions last 1 hour and 15 minutes. They are interactive, discussion-based sessions that are open to all FCPS families. You do not need to be a PTA member to participate.

A small stipend will be given to the first 20 registrants per session who then attend and complete a brief survey.
