Student, Family and School Services, working with schools, families and the community, is dedicated to promoting the shared responsibility and mutual process of engaging families in meaningful and culturally appropriate ways to foster student learning and development.
We work to ensure families have the tools and opportunities to be active and effective partners in their children's school experience; and support schools and community partners in building family-school partnerships to support learning opportunities in the classroom, community, and at home.
We believe that all families, schools, and the community can work together to help students achieve academic proficiency and college and career readiness by:
MCPS is committed to improving students’ school experience and academic success and ensuring equitable learning opportunities by engaging families in decision-making and program review. The FEAT provides opportunities for MCPS families to learn about and provide input and feedback on the district’s programs and initiatives, ensuring that family connections are inclusive, individualized, integrated and impactful (from the National PTA “Four Is” framework for Transformative Family Engagement); and create uniform expectations and best practices for individual schools and districtwide decision making.
Team responsibilities include:
The FEAT is composed of no more than 15 parent/guardians, including individuals and community stakeholders, a school administrator, a teacher, a Parent-Community Coordinator (PCC) and a member of Student and Family Support and Engagement. Note: the term “parent” refers to the parent or legal guardian of a child enrolled in a MCPS. The FEAT meets at least seven times during the school year and members serve a two-year term.
