Office of Family Engagement and Community Partnerships (OFECP)

  • In Saint Paul Public Schools, we recognize that our mission to provide a premier education for all depends on broad-based support – from students, families, staff, partner organizations and community members. The Office of Family Engagement & Community Partnerships works to build this support. OFECP's work is in the following program areas:

    • Family Engagement, Ombudsperson, and Parent Information and Outreach
    • Multilingual and Community Parent Advisory Councils (PACs)
    • Community Partnerships
    • Parent Academy (PA) and Children's Learning Academy (CLA)
  • About the Strategic Plan

    SPPS' Parent Academy Program provides families with the necessary tools to support the success of their child's education.

    Many schools have "family liaisons" -- sometimes called parent coordinators, cultural specialists, or project coordinators -- dedicated to working with families.
