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 Westgate reported: 

  • 100 percent feel my school welcomes families of different backgrounds and cultures.
  • 99 percent feel Westgate recogizes and respects families' cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity. 
  • 99 percent feel there are opportunities to volunteer at Westgate.
  • 98 percent feel Westgate's school eladers inspire families to be active participants in the school community.
  • 98 percent feel the school staff keeps me informed of my child's progress.

The feedback provided will help us strengthen family engagement and continue to foster a Caring Culture. Review the complete results here:
