Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is an instructional strategy in which schools  are committed to creating meaningful partnerships with families to support student academic success.  FACE work is equity work: by fostering equal partnerships between parents and educators, we aim to narrow the achievement and opportunity gaps in APS. The research is resounding: when schools and families work together, students, schools, and the entire Arlington community benefit!
