Title 1 and FACE



Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is supported by the Office of Family Engagement and Title 1 through Arlington Public School! FACE is a learning strategy to support student achievement. Title 1 is a program through the federal government. Learn more about how APS works with Title 1 supports here!

Both FACE and Title 1 at Hoffman-Boston support student achievement. We also both work closely with the Hoffman-Boston PTA! Check out this video for details.
