• Family & Community Engagement (FACE) Network

    Beginning in Spring of 2014-15 the Alameda County Office of Education launched its first FACE network. 

    The FACE Network convenes diverse stakeholders across Alameda County grounded in Racial Equity and Social Justice principles that builds the capacity of district and community leaders to address the Six Conditions of Systems Change; Structural Change, Relationships, Connections and Power Dynamics and Transformative Change using a research based Dual-Capacity building framework. Within the network, participants from across programmatic areas engage in practitioner and policy discussions, tailored culturally responsive professional development and receive differentiated technical assistance. 

    The FACE Theory of Action (ToA) states that family and community engagement, positive school climate and cultural transformation should be meaningfully integrated across the school system aligned to academic outcomes through a collaborative effort rooted firmly in racial equity and social justice examining programs, practices and policies.

    Participants will co-create, assess, implement and explore strategies to integrate Justice oriented policies, programs and practices across their local strategic plans, Local Continuity Plans (LCP) and Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAPs).The FACE Network serves as a model for how the collective ownership of participants can transform educational systems from unilateral transactional spaces into collaborative spaces of partnership
