Family Engagement Office

The Office of Family Engagement partners with students, families, and community organizations to:
• Empower students and their families to actively participate in their education;
• Provide resources and support to students, families, and staff in times of need; and
• Support a variety of district programs that help eliminate potential barriers to the academic success of all Franklin Pierce students.

Another primary goal of the Office of Family Engagement is to lead the district’s efforts in creating an equity plan. More information will be coming soon.

The Office of Family Engagement provides support to the following programs:
