FCPS Office of Special Services

The Office of Special Education Instruction directs and supports the development, implementation, operation, and evaluation of Pre-K–12 educational programs, curricula, and services that meet the unique needs of students with disabilities.

ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

ESOL services prepare students to be college and career ready by developing proficiency in the English language. ESOL services help students achieve academic success, develop critical thinking skills, and solve problems.

School Psychology Services

School psychologists are mental health specialists with knowledge of child development, the psychology of learning, behavior management and intervention, monitoring the progress of students, and program evaluation.

    Social Work and Support Services

    School social workers focus on family and community factors that influence learning. They provide intensive services for students facing issues that pose risks to their academic success such as parent divorce and separation, grief, poverty, truancy, chronic illness, mental health problems, conduct problems, child abuse, etc. The social worker at Key MS is Joanna Rydalch. She can be reached at 703-822-8515 or mrydalch@fcps.edu

    Contact your school social workers if you need help finding affordable lunch for your children, food, holiday meals, clothing, school supplies, and eye glasses. They can also help your children maintain stability at school, should your family lose your stable housing. A federal law protects your children’s right to attend their same school even if your family loses stable housing.

    The PRC offers many services for families experiencing traumatic/stressful events, and for families of special needs students.

    Transportation Services

    The Office of Transportation Services is responsible for providing the safe and efficient transportation of all eligible students to and from schools and school activities each day.
