MCPS parents are invited to apply to be a part of the MCPS Family Engagement Advisory Team (FEAT). The purpose of the FEAT is to provide opportunities for MCPS families to learn about and provide input and feedback on the district’s programs and initiatives. Some sample responsibilities of FEAT members include: solicit feedback from other parents in the community, participate in efforts to promote a welcoming environment in all schools, increase engagement with all students and families equitably.
MCPS is committed to improving students’ school experience and academic success and ensuring equitable learning opportunities by engaging families in decision-making and program review. The FEAT will meet at least seven times during the school year and members will be required to serve a two-year term. Applications are due August 26.
Parent Community Coordinators (PCC) foster connections between schools, families, and community partners to improve the academic and social-emotional outcomes for students.
