Family and Community Engagement (FACE)

OFA Logo copyFamily and Community Engagement (FACE) is an instructional strategy in which schools are committed to creating meaningful partnerships with families to support student academic success.? FACE work is equity work: by fostering equal partnerships between parents and educators, we aim to narrow the achievement and opportunity gaps in APS.

When schools and families work together, students, schools, and the entire 鶹 community benefit!?

FACE brings research to action by providing schools, families, and community partners the tools they need to work together so all of 鶹s children have the opportunity to succeed. With a focus on enhancing both families’ and educators’ capacity, our work is based on best practices and peer-reviewed research and literature.
