What is F.A.C.E.?

FACE = Family And Community Engagement

Springfield District 186 defines Family And Community Engagement as school, family and community partnerships built on trust and meaningful communication that creates strong academic support systems for all students.

What happens when schools, families, and community work together?

A space launch relies on engineers, mathematicians, and physicists working together to send astronauts into space. The same is true for children’s learning—to take off, families, schools, and communities need to work together.

Everyone at mission control works together to plan, implement, and complete a mission. Families, schools, and communities can do the same thing by collaborating and planning successful learning and exploration at the start of the school year. And by working together throughout the year on this shared mission, they can successfully launch student learning and make sure all students can reach their goals.
