Agenda Item Summary: On November, 23, 2020, ACPS presented information regarding data, supports and structures through the presentation titled, “ Academic Disparities: Hispanic Male Graduation Rates.” In the questions and answer section of the agenda item, the ACPS School Board requested additional information on how the Office of Community Partnerships and Engagement supports outreach and engagement to Hispanic families. The following provides specific information from the work of Family and Community Engagement Center (FACE), Partnerships and the T. C. Williams Family Engagement Specialist.
Background: The Office of Community Partnerships and Engagement supports broad-based, innovative partnerships that strengthen the education for all ACPS students. Through these partnerships, ACPS inspires civic engagement in students and encourages lifelong learners. In addition, the office provides families with the high-quality services they need to be leaders in the education of their children through the work of school-based, division-wide parent liaisons and the family engagement specialist at T.C. Williams.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the information regarding Hispanic male graduation rates.
