Family Engagement
Family and Community Engagement (F.A.C.E.) is committed to strengthening the relationship between our parents, stakeholders, and many others who are integral in helping Alexander City Schools position children to be successful. Our programs and initiatives are based on local and national best-practice models. We believe parents are partners in the educational process and the larger community constitutes the village for which we have many platforms designed for your engagement.

Family and Community Engagement's primary responsibilities are to collect data,  promote volunteer opportunities, and empower families throughout the District.  We also support other activities and opportunities that are centered around helping our students through supporting families.

Data collection - Data collection is required throughout the academic year.  We collect data through numerous surveys, polls, and other activities.

Empowering Families - The heart of family and community engagement is the ongoing empowerment of families to engage in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication, planning, advising, decision-making, and implementing activities to improve academic quality and student performance and build capacity among all stakeholders.

Promote Parental Involvement and Volunteerism - Alexander City Schools has a rich history of parental involvement and volunteerism.  Our goal is to engage families and the community to promote opportunities for parents/ families to be present for their students, volunteers to find the best way to use their talents in the schools, and to envision new ways to for our students, families, and community to be connected.

If you are a parent, family member, or community stakeholder we would love to hear from you!  For more information about Family and Community Engagement in Alexander City Schools contact Chris Adkins at 205-396-6707 or  You can also visit our Family and Community Engagement website at
