PTES 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 Poplar Tree reported: 

  • 96 percent feel the school is safe.
  • 96 percent feel there are opportunities to volunteer at school.
  • 94 percent feel the school welcomes families of different backgrounds and cultures.
  • 94 percent feel their child feels safe at school. 
  • 93 percent feel their 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.
