Where Community supports Education
and Education supports Community
The mission of the Community Engagement Department is to close the achievement gap by boldly interrupting inequities. We do this by strengthening the capacities of schools and parents to work together as equal partners to ensure that all schools are culturally reflective of the families they serve, create a welcoming environment where all families can identify their partnership path, have comprehensive family partnership programs that increase two-way communication, support ongoing learning-at-home, develop parent leadership and establish partnerships with community stakeholders.
West Contra Costa Unified School District provides the highest quality of education, has multiple gateways to support successful schools/communities/families, increases health/test scores/grades/ graduation/college attendance, decreases expulsion/truancy/drop-out rates/achievement gap, producing children that are well-rounded, productive citizens, and ready to take on life’s challenges.
West County Full Service Community Schools is an integrated, comprehensive, coordinated initiative to achieve educational success, well-being, and self-efficacy for students, families, and communities.
