Family and Community Engagement (FACE) 

"Create connections that create change"

The mission of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is to proactively listen and respond to community concerns and enlist the participation of families and community stakeholders in dialogue pertaining to the quality of schools and improvement of educational choices for our children.

Family and community involvement is key to increasing student achievement. This includes the support of local businesses, churches, park districts, community organizations and other stakeholders within the community. FACE's strategy for ensuring that a diverse group of community stakeholders are involved in the process of strengthening the connections between our schools and our communities includes supporting the Community Action Councils (CACs) and Local School Councils (LSCs), and the engagement of strategic community partners through the Office of Faith-based Initiatives; all of which is reinforced by the outreach and coordination performed by our FACE Managers within each network.
