Extended FACE Family

  • WELCOME EXTENDED FACE FAMILY!

    EFF Gathering

    The Extended FACE Family is a support network of school-based staff charged with leading family and community engagement at the school level. Focusing DPS schools on family engagement best practice is essential for our collective success. This page is designed to be a resource to you and your staff for all things family and community engagement.

    The Family Empowerment Team supports these staff through:

    • building distributive leadership and capacity
    • professional development convenings
    • 1:1 coaching
    • best-practice resource sharing

     

    Our Strategic Approach

    Everyone benefits when parents and families are involved in their children's education. Not only do students perform higher in school, parents feel more connected to their school community. On the left side of the graphic are examples of strategies that build relationships with families and the school community. On the right are strategies that link family engagement directly to student acheivement. When they are used simultenously we see greater student outcomes and family satisfaction.

  • Super 5: Back to School Power Moves

    As you know, parents are key to helping students start the school year strong. Today, Learning Heroes launches the Super 5: Back-to-School Power Moves, a research-based campaign in English and Spanish that includes five important actions parents can can take to help set their child up for success in the new year.

    We are also excited to announce the Readiness Check, a new, free, and interactive digital tool developed by leading experts in math and reading to help parents get a gut check on how their child has learned foundational skills needed for this year and connect them to resources to practice specific skills at home. The Readiness Check is the centerpiece of the robust back-to-school campaign—in collaboration with Scholastic, National PTA, PowerMyLearning, Univision and others. If you want to dive into this a bit further, here’s a pre-recorded webinar on how to use the Readiness Check.

    We hope you’ll find the campaign’s content valuable as part of your parent engagement and outreach leading up to and throughout the back-to-school season.
