Aspiring Leaders Program / Classified

The Office of Human Resources provides an opportunity to reimagine what is possible for FCPS employees. Using classified professional development funds, we offer an Aspiring Leaders Program (ALP) for a limited number of classified, hourly staff.


This program:

  • Increases the capacity of classified, hourly staff through development of leadership skills;
  • Requires a professional commitment for active participation in all class activities;
  • Develops a “grow your own” workforce with job-embedded support from the district;
  • Encourages networking among our employees with varying expertise;
  • Increases awareness of the daily operations of FCPS classified departments;
  • Provides additional strategies for our classified, hourly staff to implement immediately.

Candidates must:

* Be employed with FCPS for at least one year; 

* Work in a full-time position;

* Complete and submit an application and resume for consideration; 

* Demonstrate potential for leadership opportunities.
