Family and Community Engagement (FACE), English Learners
EL Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Vision
The vision for EL Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is to provide opportunities for schools, families, and communities to cultivate and nurture empowering and collaborative partnerships within culturally responsive and emotionally-safe environments. LCPS student learning and academic growth is supported and encouraged by affirming and welcoming each family’s unique cultural identity.

Parents as Educational Partners (PEP) Program
The LCPS Parents as Educational Partners (PEP) program is designed to provide school sites and school-based staff continual opportunities to engage and cultivate meaningful relationships with families, ultimately, strengthening crucially important home-school partnerships.
PEP is designed to provide resources, services, and information to English Learner families, specifically those who are Bilingual Emergent. Every family is unique in their perspective, and that perspective is deeply valued in the PEP space. PEP is a safe space for families to be engaged and learn; and be uplifted in their learning.
The PEP Program is broken down into 8 curriculum units that aims to increase the knowledge of English Learner family members and parents about the United States & LCPS school system, while also deepening understanding of strategies that can be used to help positively impact and partner in their student’s education.
School-based PEP Partner teams represent LCPS staff who are dedicated to the ongoing hardwork and heartwork of family engagement.
During the 2020-2021 School Year, a total of 15 LCPS school sites implemented PEP virtually:
