F.A.C.E Core Priorities

Priority 1:A Culture of Collective EfficacyWe believe in the collective capacity of our parents to work with each other, school and district staff to positively affect student achievement in our educational community.
Priority 2:A Culture of Teaching and LearningWe believe in preparing our parents in academic, social emotional, and parenting content through parent sessions which are critical to help them prepare for college and career readiness in their children.
Priority 3:A Culture of Parent presence in SchoolsWe believe in the power of relationships between parent, teacher, administrator and staff. We acknowledge the importance of parents being present in the educational decision making process for their child to support the development of the whole child to compete in our global economy.
Priority 4:A Culture of Access and Inclusion to Ensure a Multi-Tiered System of Supports for All LearnersWe believe parents are an essential part of implementing a coherent system that is vital to meet the academic, behavioral and social emotional needs of all students.
