Family and Community Engagement Department

  • San Juan Unified School District actively engages parents, guardians, extended family and community members to be our valued partners in the education process. We believe that parents and guardians are their children’s first and most influential teachers and that sustained family involvement in the education of their children contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school environment. 

    Our Family and Community Engagement department (FACE) assists family and community members with the following:

    • Family education and leadership development
    • Professional development training
    • Business and community partnerships
    • Volunteer support and training
