Data and Analysis
Data Collection and Analysis
FCAG members spend a lot of time collecting and finding information
collected by others. This allows us to compare programs and progress
over many years in Fairfax County public schools.
Math Acceleration at FCPS Middle and High Schools
FCAG has limited information on SOL pass rates and advanced math coursework.
Please visit our Math Data page.
AAP Class Size Data Analysis
The release of class size data for every elementary school in FCPS allowed FCAG to analyze the impact of
staffing formulae and principal practices for Level IV eligible students enrolled in Level IV AAP at Centers or
in Base Schools (referred to as LIV Students in this paper). Because Level IV AAP begins in grade three, this
paper looks solely at class sizes in grades three to six.
It compares class sizes of LIV Students and of other students (referred to as 'Other Students').

FCPS changes its admissions policy for Thomas
Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) regularly. When
admissions policies change, the previous policies are not available.
FCAG records the admissions policies over the years. We also keep a
finger on the discussions and actions by the school board, and maintain
a record for future reference. Finally, when available, we post data on
who is admitted, and any relevant data we can find. You can find the
information about many of our activities here
Look to the right of that page to find specific statistics, for
example, on our current admissions policies, or admission statistics.

ACT. The information is posted each year, and sometimes taken down when
new information becomes available. FCAG maintains these records here
