The Office of Family and Community Engagement has several options for parents seeking support with navigating the District, getting information about services and resources, and resolving their concerns. Whether you’re trying to locate the right contact for your questions, or need to voice a concern, we can help you reach the right place or person.
If your concern is specific to your child’s school and staff, we always recommend you reach out to the teachers and principal, first, to try to work together to resolve issues.
If you still feel you are not getting the support you seek at your school, please contact the Family Engagement Liaison responsible for your school.
