Agenda Item Summary: As part of the Office of Community Partnerships and Engagement, the ACPS Family and Community Engagement (FACE) team works with families, caregivers, community members and staff at all schools to strengthen family-school partnerships by modeling best practices, supporting implementation and eliminating barriers to engagement. This memo and attached presentation provide an update on the progress of the multi-year roll-out of school-based family engagement blueprints across the division.

The process follows the U.S. Department of Education Family Engagement Dual Capacity-Building Framework and ACPS Family Engagement Policy.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the information found in the presentation and attachments.
