Region North Family and Community Engagement (FACE)

  • When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer and like school more.

    The office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) supports school efforts to implement effective family engagement activities that value partnerships with parents and families for the benefit of children’s learning and achievement. You can find additional resources by visiting the Office of Student, Family and Community Engagement.
