The Family and Community Engagement Services (FACES) Department develops and implements programs that focus on increasing family engagement to promote student academic achievement. The goal of FACES is to increase engagement through identifying, creating, and fostering opportunities for two-way meaningful communication with families, schools, and the community.
University of Family Learning
FACES implements the University of Family Learning (UFL), which provides families of students of all ages with educational resources and support. There are over 100 UFL classes in four focus areas: parents as teaching partners; navigating the school system; involvement, leadership and advocacy; and promoting wellness and development. Classes will be offered in digital/virtual formats and, when possible, in-person at the 10 Family Engagement Centers, CCSD schools, and other community sites. In addition, FACES offers over 50 on-demand informational videos accessible at any time. For videos, event times, and locations, check faces.ccsd.net or contact the student’s school.
Family Engagement Centers
FACES Title I Family Engagement Centers are located in nine Title I elementary schools and one Title I middle school throughout CCSD. In collaboration with community and CCSD partners, the Family Engagement Centers provide opportunities to improve family capabilities and establish and nurture relationships with one common goal – student academic achievement. The Family Engagement Centers connect families with academic and community resources, support families and students with technology, provide English as a second language (ESL) classes for adults, and provide early childhood education programming. The Family Engagement Centers are open to all current and future CCSD families and will open mid-August 2021. For the locations of these centers, visit faces.ccsd.net or call 702-799-0303.
FACES hosts Super Saturday academies throughout the academic school year. The academies will be virtual and in-person events, and all schools are encouraged to participate. Super Saturday academies provide an opportunity for families of all ages to visit community locations, engage in hands-on activities, gain valuable at-home learning strategies, and connect to District and community resources. Announcements of the Super Saturday academies are posted on faces.ccsd.net.
For more information about family activities in support of student achievement, contact the FACES Department at 702-799-0303 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information is also available on the FACES website at faces.ccsd.net or on several social media platforms, including the FACES pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
Indian Education Department
The Indian Education Department (IED) services eligible American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) students at two locations: Indian Education Support Center (IESC) located at 4204 Channel 10 Dr., Las Vegas, NV 89119, and the Moapa Educational Support Center (MESC) located on the Moapa River Indian Reservation, 17½ Lincoln St., Moapa, NV 89025. The focus of IED is to close achievement gaps, increase graduation rates, and increase student and parent/guardian engagement.
IED works closely with the Clark County Indian Education Committee (CCIEC) and consults with local Tribes and parents/guardians of AI/AN CCSD students to provide quality educational and cultural programs and services to eligible CCSD AI/AN students.
For additional information, contact the IED at 702- 799-8515. Information is also available on the IED website at indianed.ccsd.net or several social media platforms, including the Indian Education Department pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Infinite Campus is the District’s Student Information System, electronic grade book, and parent/guardian and student portal. The Campus Parent/Student application provides access to information to understand, monitor, and participate in the educational process.
A mobile app is also accessible for any Apple iOS or Android device. For more information about Infinite Campus, visit ccsd.net/infinite-campus.
Campus Parent/Student will be live for the 2021-2022 school year beginning Aug. 9, 2021. Campus Student usernames and passwords have been changed to the students’ Google credentials. Parents/guardians who have a Campus Parent account from the previous school year will continue to use the same username and password. If you do not have an account, please contact your child’s school.
If you are having trouble accessing your Infinite Campus Portal account, or need assistance, please contact the Portal Liaison or designee at your child’s school. You may also email email@example.com, or call the Portal Help Desk at 702-799-PORT (7678), Monday-Friday, 6:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. PST.
Title I HOPE
Homeless Outreach Program For Education
The Title I HOPE office provides assistance to families in transitional or temporary living situations such as living in a car, hotel/motel, shelter, or multi-family residence due to economic hardship.
Families eligible for Title I HOPE services have additional days to obtain the required immunizations and to submit a residential affidavit for proof of address. Title I HOPE may assist in obtaining an original birth certificate if a copy is not available for enrollment purposes.
Eligible families may contact Title I HOPE at 702-855-6682 for more details and assistance or can visit https://aarsi.ccsd.net/title-i/hope/.
The level of collaboration between families and educators is an important predictor of student academic achievement. Parents and family members who establish strong, positive relationships with school staff have more opportunities to learn about the education system and become better education advocates.
Who do I contact if I have a concern about my child’s school?
If there is a concern, contact the school to request an opportunity to address your concerns and have a dialogue about the issue. Concerns that are not resolved at the school level may be addressed by calling 702-799-CCSD, where you will be directed to the appropriate department or division.
There is also a public concern process per CCSD Policy 1213 that provides a formal investigation of the stated issue and provides the person filing the concern with a written response of that investigation. For more information, contact the Community Services Department at 702-799-5830.
