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:

    • Parent Academy (PA) and Children's Learning Academy (CLA) 
    • Multilingual and Community Parent Advisory Councils (PACs)
    • Community Partnerships
    • School Attendance Matters (SAM)
    • Family Engagement, Ombudsperson, and Parent Information and Outreach
