Family Communication


FACE: November is Family Empowerment Month

While 2020 has been a whirlwind of uncertainty, one unwavering constant has been our collective dedication to building effective partnerships with our parents and families of New York's 1.1 million students.

Family Empowerment Month is an opportunity to recognize the importance of school, home and community partnerships, now even more crucial in these times. Family Empowerment Month is collection of activities and events celebrating and supporting families. We invite you, our colleagues and partners in this work, to join us this month and year in celebrating and supporting our families.
