Support Staff Recruitment

So much goes on behind the scenes to make our daily teaching activities run like clockwork. The FCPS support team works hard to keep our teachers prepared, our facilities in top condition, our children fed, and our buses running on time. Even if you are not a teacher, you can help FCPS fulfill the Promise of Public Education by joining our support staff.
