Engaged community members and business partners are essential in helping schools deliver on the promise of public education for every child. That's why FCPS welcomes and fosters community engagement in many ways:
The FCPS Family/Community Engagement Council (FCEC) is committed to improving and strengthening engagement and collaboration with all members of the Frederick County community - parents, families, business, civic groups and others in the belief that proactive, two-way engagement, communication, and dialogue empower student success and promote a stronger Frederick County.
Gifts for Education provides an opportunity for charitable givers to help extend Frederick County Public Schools' reach beyond normal budgetary limits through the Community Foundation of Frederick County, Inc.
Senior Citizens lend a helping hand and share their expertise with students through school volunteer programs and serving on school system committees. Schools also welcome guests age 60 or older to free admission, on a space-available basis, to FCPS-sponsored events such as concerts, plays and athletic events (excluding high school graduations and state-sponsored athletic playoffs).
