We’re dedicated to creating and supporting partnerships among schools, families, and communities. As a central resource for family engagement, FACE staff strive to engage and inform parent leaders and families as essential partners in helping students achieve academic proficiency and college and career readiness. FACE is here to assist families in navigating the School District, and we are proud to offer opportunities for families to actively take part in their children’s academic lives.
Welcome to the Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
October is Family Engagement Month!
THANK YOU to the amazing parents, caretakers, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, grandfathers, cousins, siblings, and other family members who support our students through thick and thin. A special shout out as well to staff that engage families as genuine partners and family-school organizations like School Advisory Councils, Home and School Associations, and Friends Of groups that make our schools more welcoming and collaborative communities.
