Family and Community Engagement Spotlight: Brooklyn

We featured this FCEP spotlight in our March 2018 newsletter

On February 9, Community School District 17 in Brooklyn hosted the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the district's new Family Resource Center to be housed at the Brooklyn Children's Museum. The Family Resource Center aims to connect families with existing resources within the school and the community. The Center also fosters a safe environment where families can drive the direction of conversations, and guests work with families and the community to problem-solve issues related to the success of youth of color within the district. The Center will provide in- and out-of-school supports for academically struggling youth, justice nights, and educational supports for parents.
