Virtual Family Engagement Sessions

  • Virtual Family Engagement Hour

    Columbus City Schools has launched a series of Virtual Family Engagement Sessions to provide updated information and answer parents’ questions about the safe start to our new schools year. Appropriately named “F.A.C.E. 2 Face” (Family And Community Engagement), these online virtual sessions are hosted in Zoom chatrooms by the Department of Engagement and expert District staff who share information and insights on specific topics. We know families have a lot of questions, so the staff tries to answer as many questions as possible during the hour. You can watch archived videos of previous sessions below, or click here for a link to our "mini sessions" hosted on Facebook Live for other topics of discussion. For more information, email the Department of Engagement at engage@columbus.k12.oh.us.
