InfoKaye and her husband Ross have lived in Fairfax County for over 30 years. Kaye’s three children — Matthew, Sandy and Caroline — all attended Fairfax County Public Schools and are graduates of J.E.B. Stuart High School. In addition to 10 years of service on the Fairfax County School Board, Kaye has been an active leader in a diverse range of community organizations including: the Annandale Chamber of Commerce; the Virginia League of Conservation Voters and the NAACP. She has been a sustaining member of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee since 2001.

Kaye gravitated to the educational arena when seeking pre-K options when her children were young. She soon emerged as a leader of the Montessori School of Northern Virginia (MSNV), one of the oldest in the region. She transitioned into PTA leadership positions following her children’s transition to the public schools.

Kaye won a special election for the Mason District seat on the Fairfax County School Board in June of 1999, following the resignation for health reasons of former member Fred Ward. Fred supported Kaye in that election, even though Kaye was a frequent and vocal critic of many School Board and school administration policies. Fred knew Kaye as a PTA activist at Sleepy Hollow Elementary, Glasgow Middle School and J.E.B. Stuart High School, a mother of three and a passionate and effective community builder. Kaye routinely turned out crowds to observe and testify at School Board meetings and work sessions.

Following that first special election, Kaye won three regular elections by some of the largest margins for Democrats in Mason District and across the County.

Kaye has also served on numerous boards and committees in her 30 years in Fairfax County including the Fairfax County Community Action Advisory Board, the Board (member and President) of the Montessori School of Northern Virginia, the Fairfax County Partnership for Youth, the Fairfax County Association for the Gifted; the J.E.B. Stuart Educational Foundation (founding President); the Fairfax County Boys and Girls club; and the Hampton Court Homeowner’s Association.

Kaye has a B.A. degree in English from The Western College for Women (today, part of Miami University of Ohio).
