Family and Community Engagement
The Office of Family & Community Engagement addresses the needs of students and families outside of the classroom. With the understanding that academic learning is most successful when all needs are met, the OFCE works with families on a continuum of support from the enrollment process, to after school enrichment and transportation needs, to help finding social support services. The office partners with community agencies and stakeholders to connect families to resources beyond the schools. The OFCE departments include: Medford Family Network, Registration Office, Before/Afterschool programs at the elementary schools, the Engagement/Attendance team, and transportation. The OFCE is the center of the district’s Engagement Hub which connects the Health, Special Education, Counseling, and English Learners departments, putting all students at the center of their learning and well-being while ensuring a shared vision for equity, disability awareness, anti-racism, anti-bias, and cultural proficiency.
