Virtual Family Engagement Sessions

  • Virtual Family Engagement Hour

    Columbus City Schools hosts Virtual Family Engagement Sessions every Tuesday and Thursday to share information, gather feedback, and engage with our students, families, staff, and community partners. Appropriately named “F.A.C.E. 2 Face” (Family And Community Engagement), these online virtual sessions are hosted in Zoom by the Department of Engagement, with expert District staff and many of our community partners sharing information and insights on important topics. We know families have a lot of questions, so the team tries to answer as many questions as possible during the hour. You can watch archived videos of previous sessions below. For more information, email the Engagement team at engage@columbus.k12.oh.us.
