The Family and Community Empowerment (FACE) Department provides training, information and technical assistance to assist all SCUSD schools in the creation of effective school-family partnerships.
FACE supports families and schools in building capacity for achievement focused family engagement through the following programs:
Parent Leadership Pathway Training Series–Engagement Linked To Learning
A successful Parent Resource Center gives parents a sense of ownership by including them as stakeholders in the space and program design. Parent created and run centers are key in the development of relationships between families, school staff and community partners.
The Parent Information Exchange (PIE) was established in 1999 as an opportunity for SCUSD parents and school site and district staff to exchange information with community agencies providing free and low-cost services to students and their families.
The Family and Community Empowerment Department coordinates the monthly luncheon meetings that bring together key representatives from school parent groups, SCUSD staff, community organizations, city and county agencies and business partners to discuss their programs and services for families. The meetings are designed to create ever-growing partnerships with resources that will support the educational, health and emotional development of our students.
