Family and Community Engagement Services (FACES)
Vision - All schools, families, and communities will be partners in education ensuring success for all children.
Mission - Together as partners in supporting all children’s academic, social, and emotional growth, we communicate, nurture trust, and advocate for all families and communities.
The Office of Family and Community Engagement Services (FACES) is responsible for developing, coordinating, and implementing internal and external programs that are focused on increasing family engagement and student academic achievement. By identifying, creating, and fostering opportunities for two-way, meaningful communication with students, parents, families, staff, and community partners, FACES seeks to strengthen family engagement throughout the district. FACES staff facilitates the districtwide Parent Engagement Forum and works in conjunction with local and state organizations to increase legislative and community support and communication and collaborative efforts on behalf of parent-school education. FACES works in conjunction with Title 1 to conduct the University of Family Learning to provide families, caregivers and the community opportunities to take classes on a variety of subjects from ESL, graduation requirements, and how to support student learning at home.
Office of Government Affairs
The Office of Government Affairs represents the district in matters concerning the state legislature, Congress, the Nevada State Board of Education, the Nevada Department of Education, and local governments. The office helps develop legislative priorities; represents the district at legislative hearings; lobbies during the legislative session; meets with legislators during the interim to assist with the education-related concerns of their constituents; and serves as a district contact on various public policy issues. The office also produces an analysis of education-related legislation between sessions and monitors the district's compliance with legislation during the interim.
The mission of the School-Community Partnership Program is to connect business and community resources with school resources to enrich the educational experience and increase student achievement.
The program began in 1983 as a pilot program of seven schools partnered with seven businesses. Since that time, it has grown to hundreds of partnerships with programs that range from kindergarten to twelfth grade, from tutorial programs to scholarships, from science activities to fine arts programs. The Partnership Program is curriculum-based with an emphasis on human resources. Partnership ventures are designed to support, supplement and complement the curriculum of the Clark County public schools.
