South Lakes Family Engagement Survey Results

For the first time, Fairfax County Public Schools conducted a division-wide Family Engagement Survey.  The survey was administered March 24 – April 12, 2019 to all families with students in grades K-12.  

All families in FCPS were asked to provide their feedback on their engagement at their child’s school to address the following topics: 

  • Welcoming environment
  • Communication
  • Student success
  • Advocacy
  • Family and school partnerships
  • Collaboration with the community

We are proud that families at South Lakes reported: 

  • 93 percent feel my school welcomes families of different backgrounds and cultures.
  • 90 percent feel welcome at my child's school.
  • 88 percent feel my child feels safe at school.
  • 88 percent feel information provided to me is easy to understand.
  • 87 percent feel my child connects to and trusts at least one caring adult at the school.

The feedback provided will help us strengthen family engagement and continue to foster a Caring Culture.
