FCPS Parent Technology Help Desk
To support families who are working with their children during distance learning, Fairfax County Public Schools launched a new Parent Technology Help Desk. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff 7 a.m.to 11 p.m., seven days a week. If the help desk is unable to solve the issue on the phone with the parent or guardian, they will enter a ticket on the parent’s behalf and the request for help will be transferred to the appropriate FCPS team.
Parents or guardians who need help in a language other than English should let help desk staff know, and a interpreter will join them on the line. (FCPS also has existing parent information phone lines, available in eight different languages, that can assist with general questions about FCPS.)
FCPS has also set up an online portal to allow older students and parents and guardians to request technology help directly.
Video Tips & Tricks for Distance Learning
FCPS has created a YouTube Playlist with lots of helpful short video tutorials to support students during distance learning.
Multilingual Parent Information Phone Lines
FCPS offers telephone support to parents who do not speak English as their first language.
