    Core Values

    The Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is committed to authentic engagement of families/parents and community partners that reflects the following core values:

    • All families have hopes and dreams for their children and want the best for them.
    • All families have the capacity to support their children’s learning.
    • Families and school staff should be equal partners in the education of children.
    • The primary responsibility for building partnerships between home and school rests mainly with school leaders and staff.
    • Our community partners and stakeholders are valuable contributors to the education of our students in preparing them to compete in the 21st Century Global Economy and are critical to the success of The Cleveland Plan and the continued vitality of the region. 


    Every school will welcome every family and student (regardless of race, ethnicity, religious or sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, linguistic differences, or family structure).  They will work to actively engage families, community agencies and volunteers as partners in student learning and school improvement.
