Frequently Asked Questions FAQs

  • What is the FCPS App?

    Powered by Blackboard Connect’s Parent Link, the FCPS app is an aggregator that pulls together in one place the most frequently used content from the FCPS website and social media platforms.  The app translates content into 65 languages and enables the district to issue push notifications to the mobile device in the event of school closures or other emergencies.  FCPS district content is always available to users on the app, but the app also allows for customization so that the user can follow the school or schools of his or her choice. 

    For example, if a parent has students in an elementary, middle and high school, the parent can choose to follow all three schools in order to have all of that information channeled to one convenient place.
