The following opportunities provide ways to connect with both the Office of Family School and Community Partnerships and with districts across the state. Some opportunities will be for specific audiences.

FSCP Office Hours
Every second Thursday of the month, the Office of Family School and Community Partnerships will be hosting virtual Office Hours from 9:00am - 10:00am. These are a great opportunity for those new to FSCP to lean more about family engagement in Colorado. This time can also be used to brainstorm ideas with us or learn about new resources. Office hours are informal - no need to RSVP, and you can stay for the full hour or just long enough to get your questions answered.
Find us on Zoom every second Thursday of the month!
Audience: Everyone welcome, especially new FSCP contacts
Every third Friday of the month, we invite district FSCP contacts to our monthly Coffee Chat. These take place either virtually or in person. Check the Year at a Glance for dates and locations.
Audience: District staff
Coffee Chat LearnWorlds Group
District contacts who participate in our monthly coffee chats are invited to join our Coffee Chat group on LearnWorlds. This group operates like a social media group, and is great place to share resources, ask questions, and celebrate FSCP successes. To learn more about signing up for LearnWorlds, contact Jes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
