The Family Engagement Specialist serves as the link between the school, parents, and community.  They will develop and foster community collaborations, as well as provide referrals to community-based services for families.  Also, they will expand opportunities to families for continued learning, voluntary community service, and civic participation.  They will guide parents to understand the educational system so they can become better advocates for their children’s education and empower parents to become decision-makers.

Vision #1:  Provide families with the necessary skills and tools to ensure their children achieve their greatest potential in school and in life.

Vision #2:  We envision a world where every child enters school ready to succeed because every parent has the knowledge, skills, and resources to support their children’s learning

Vision #3:  We want to strengthen families and communities to help prepare themselves and the workforce of the future.
