Cumberland Family Academy
Over the next several weeks, Cumberland Family Academy (CFA), the district’s family engagement outreach arm, is bringing schools and families together by sharing dynamic and relevant information that will support the academic success of students.
In March, CFA began streaming popular family engagement sessions on Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) Facebook page. Parents and caregivers tuned in and learn more about helping children with math, preparing for college, offering social-emotional support, and much more.
The full lineup of CFA sessions is listed below:
I Need Help Helping My Child In Math!
Motivating the Unmotivated Child
Family Literacy Night
IEP 101: How the Process Works
It’s Never Too Early: Career Awareness 101
In Collaboration with CCS Student Services: Supporting the Needs of the Whole Child
Prepping for College: Admissions, Scholarships and More
Technology 101: Internet Safety
In Collaboration with CCS Student Services: Mental Health Town Hall
Beyond the Labels: Understanding The Struggling Learner
As CFA grows, the district is requesting feedback and comments on available offerings. Responses will help CFA develop programs and resources to meet the needs of all families. The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete and responses will remain anonymous. To begin the survey, visit: https://forms.gle/426zfAXawM8UnkqX8.
CFA is a CCS family engagement initiative that provides free workshops and educational events for CCS families. Research shows that students achieve more when families are engaged in their education. The purpose of CFA is to provide families with the necessary academic tools to support the success of their child’s education and to bring schools, parents/guardians, families, and community organizations together as equal partners.
