Connect and Collaborate

Opportunities to Connect + Collaborate

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.


Do you have an idea you'd like to share for a new way to connect and collaborate?

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

Coffee Chat

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.

Visit the FSCP Coffee Chat website here.

Audience: District staff
