• Welcome to the Hillsborough County Public Schools! The Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Department is the lead resource for promoting and establishing strong collaborative structures between our schools, families, and community to increase student performance, and improve family-child-school relations. 

    As we work with and support our schools, families, learners and community, we will focus on the following core strategies:

    1. Educate
      Increase educational support, family efficacy, leadership and advocacy through high quality, ongoing parent education courses and opportunities.
    2. Empower
      Build the capacity of school staff by creating & offering trainings, tools, tips & technical assistance that strengthens sustainable engagement strategies.
    3. Engage
      Cultivate community partnerships that support families, education and student achievement through community resources, collaboration and in-kind donations.

    Thanks for visiting our webpage!  Our team looks forward to serving you, as collectively we “Prepare Students for Life!”
