The Fauquier Excellence in Education Foundation provides financial assistance to dedicated Fauquier County public school teachers, educators and administrators to enable them to participate in high quality professional development opportunities that will impact their classroom teaching. These funds will support participation in experiences such as conferences, seminars, research, cultural programs and summer institutes. Since the program began in 1984, funds in excess of a quarter of a million dollars have benefited nearly 200 teachers as they pursued a diverse list of opportunities.
