April Office Hours

Please join me for my office hours tomorrow to discuss some of the upcoming FY20 budget decisions facing the School Board and any issues or concerns you may have.


TOMORROW: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:30 AM

Kings Park Library* | Large Meeting Room

9000 Burke Lake Road, Burke, VA

TONIGHT: Parent-Community Meeting for Robinson Secondary School New Principal Search

As the Robinson Secondary Parents, Community Members and Staff may already know, the FCPS Region 4 office will begin the search for a new principal for Robinson Secondary School. An important step in that process is to inform staff and parents about this process.


Therefore, all Robinson Secondary School staff, parents and community members are invited to attend an important meeting tonight.


Monday, April 8, 2019 - 6:30 PM

Robinson Secondary School - Recital Hall

5035 Sideburn Road, Fairfax, VA 22032


Another critical component to the process is your written input. We invite you to offer your individual, written input (preferably via e-mail) regarding the skills, experience, and leadership characteristics needed for Robinson Secondary School. You might also address any challenges or issues that a new principal will need to address. Input is confidential and will not be discussed at the meeting. We welcome your input now, upon receipt of this letter, and are hopeful that many of you will share your thoughts. Please e-mail your ideas to or mail your suggestions to Adam McGeehan at Human Resources, 8115 Gatehouse Road, Falls Church, VA  22042-1203, by Thursday, April 11, 2019. Suggestions for input are located below.


We look forward to working closely with the Robinson Secondary School staff, parents, and community members during the principal selection process.


TONIGHT: One University Project Community Meeting - April 8, 2019

Supervisor Cook will hold a community meeting so that the Planning staff can present their recommendation for this site. The developer will also present its newly revised layout reflecting changes made in response to input from both the community and county staff. The biggest change is that all three housing buildings have been moved away from the northern property border to allow for a wider tree buffer.


Monday, April 8, 2019 -  7:00 PM
Fairfax Villa Elementary School | Cafeteria
10900 Santa Clara Drive, Fairfax, VA


One University Development Partners, LLC, submitted a proposal to redevelop 10.84 acres at the northwest corner of the intersection of University Drive and Ox Road with 100 affordable senior housing units, 140 affordable multi-family housing units, and 360 student housing units with approximately 820 beds. The Comprehensive Plan serves as a framework or guide to decision making about land use. The existing Comprehensive Plan recommends residential use at a density of 3-4 dwelling units per acre for the smaller odd-shaped treed parcel north of the Fairfax County Housing Authority building, and public facilities, governmental and institutional use on the remainder of the site. County staff has been getting input from various county agencies. They also gathered public input through the two community meetings held by Supervisor Cook and the Braddock District Land Use and Environment Committee meeting in December.
