Education for Change Public Schools believes that parents are full partners in their children’s education. We strive to build strong relationships of respect and trust with families.  Our family partnerships feature shared responsibility and decision-making to support every child.

School Family Leadership Councils: Every EFC school has a Family Leadership Council (FLC) with parent representatives from all classes and/or grade levels.  The FLC meets at least once a month with the school principal to review student achievement data, to set school-wide academic goals, and to participate in budget decisions.  The FLC also sponsors school events and meets with elected officials to promote the interests of students and families, becoming a positive force for change in the larger community.
