Welcome to the
Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE)

The FACE LogoWe’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.

Provide Your Input on the District’s Parent and Family Engagement Policy!

Every year, the Office of Family and Community Engagement collects feedback from all stakeholders on Policy 918, the District’s Parent and Family Engagement Policy. Your feedback allows us to adjust our programming to meet the needs of our families and students.

Online Survey

Please consider taking 5-10 minutes of your time to complete a survey on Policy 918, which helps our office to serve you better. You can read the full policy HERE, but a summary of the policy is provided below and throughout the survey.

Virtual Meeting

You can also join us for a learning and feedback session on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at either 10:00 AM or 5:30 PM. Learn about the key components of the policy, understand family programs and services, and provide feedback on the policy. We hope to see you there!
