Loudoun County Public Schools is a branch of the Loudoun County, Virginia, United States government, and administers public schools in the county.
LCPS's headquarters is located at 21000 Education Court in Ashburn, an unincorporated section of the county.Due to the rapid growth in the region, LCPS is the fastest growing school division in Virginia and one of the fastest growing public school districts in the United States, serving over 79,000 students in the 2016-2017 school year. LCPS is the third largest school division in Virginia, surpassing the enrollment of Virginia Beach City Public Schools in the 2013–2014 school year.HistoryThe public school system in Loudoun County was established in 1870 to fulfill the needs for free education after the Civil War and in an era of Reconstruction. For most of its history, LCPS has served a rural county, known for its dairy farms. Since the 1960s, Loudoun County's population skyrocketed, accompanied by that of the school system. More than thirty schools have been built between 1996 and 2006.AdministrationThe LCPS system, while operated on a day-to-day basis by the Superintendent (Dr. Eric Williams) is managed under the direction and authority of the Loudoun County School Board, a nine-member panel elected by citizens in the county. Eight of the nine board positions are divided among voting districts that represent communities throughout the county, while the ninth seat is elected at-large by the entire county. The voting districts correspond to those used for Loudoun County Board of Supervisors elections. Unlike the Board of Supervisors, the chairmanship of the School Board is elected annually by its members, while the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors is always the at-large seat. While the School Board makes decisions relating to school policy and curriculum, it receives funding through the Board of Supervisors.
