As 2013 approaches, Patch has asked Fairfax County School Board members to share their goals and priorities for 2013.
Member Ryan McElveen (At-large) chose to write an "Unofficial FCPS 2013 In-and-Out List."
It’s that time of year when we reflect on all we’ve done over the past year and look ahead to what the New Year will bring.
In a county as big as Fairfax, the to-do list is endless, but here are some of the things on which the School Board is setting its sights for 2013.
