Welcome to the Office of Student, Family & Community Engagement.
At Minneapolis Public Schools, we are proud to partner with students, families and the greater community to ensure the best possible education for all our children.
The face of our office also extends to our network of family liaisons, who facilitate communication between schools and families, and it extends to those who staff MPS family resource centers, where information on services and programs supporting parenting and family assistance is yours for the asking.
OSFCE Mission Statement: The Office of Family and Community Engagement builds the capacity of MPS, school, staff, families, students and the community to establish partnerships that strengthen student learning and improve schools.
OSFCE Vision: MPS will welcome every family and every student, actively engaging them as partners in student learning and school improvement.
Attend to Achieve: A Family Guide to Supporting Academic Success--You matter. We know that when families are involved in their children's education, children attend school more regularly, earn higher grades and, as a result, are academically more successful. No matter where your child is in the process, we hope that you find this guide useful to help you engage in his or her education to support their academic success. (Print PDF 11x17 or 8x11)
