Family And Community Engagement (FACE)
What we do:
Fayette County Public Schools recognizes that family and community engagement is essential as we partner to educate our students and prepare them for life-long learning. FCPS envisions a districtwide culture that promotes collaborative partnerships to support student learning, enrich educational experiences, and prepare students to excel as successful citizens in a global society. Once parents, teachers, and community members view one another as partners in education, a caring community forms around students, helping to ensure success.
