FAMILY SUPPORT #

The Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is working with various departments and offices across the school division and county government to plan fall programming that will assist families in supporting their students. Among the upcoming opportunities:

  • Tech It Out: FACE is working with the Technology Department and the Instructional Innovation team to provide virtual Tech It Out family engagement opportunities. Through this programming, families will be provided a deeper understanding of how school division-issued Chromebooks, the various computer-based applications that will be used to support virtual learning (Dreambox, Lexia, myOn, etc.), our Google-based educational platforms and our cyber security efforts. Initial Tech It Out support can be found here: https://sites.google.com/ccpsnet.net/tech-it-out-resources/.
  • Canvas 101 for Parents: FACE is working with the Instructional Innovation team to provide virtual Canvas family engagement exercises. Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) with integrated learning products that support a dynamic, digital learning environment to meet the unique instructional needs of teachers and their students. K-12 school districts and higher education institutions from around the world use an LMS as a single platform for students and teachers to interact around coursework. An LMS also provides visibility and tools for parents, school leaders, and division leaders to support effective teaching, learning, and communication. Initial Canvas support can be found here: https://sites.google.com/ccpsnet.net/canvas-parent-resource/home and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puSb68iHG4U.
  • Time Management: FACE is working with departments in the school division and county government to develop a series that will assist families with providing support in developing schedules, managing new routines, creating appropriate learning spaces and putting into place structures that can support a strong virtual learning environment at home.
