Family & Community Engagement
Students thrive when schools and families work together.
The Department of Family and Community Engagement is responsible for ensuring that RPS families have access to information, resources, and opportunities that allow students to flourish academically. Key priority areas include cultivating mutually-beneficial partnerships with community stakeholders, facilitating volunteer engagement, and collaboratively working to address engagement issues related to attendance and dropout recovery.
