The Bureau of Family and Community Outreach (BFCO) provides resources, recognition and technical assistance to parents, communities and schools in an effort to increase parent involvement that promotes their children's success in education. BFCO has the role of fostering wider and more substantive family and community involvement by identifying and sharing information with schools and districts about the many different ways to get involved in your child's education.
