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.
