• Division of Engagement

These departments include Communications, Customer Experience, Enrollment and Choice, Family and Community Engagement, Institutional Advancement, Policy Liaison to the CEO, Say Yes to Education/Wraparound Services and Student Attendance.

    As part of this mission, the division is responsible for creating a suite of supports that increase the capacity of principals and schools to engage and support families.
