Thank you for visiting the Carolina Family Engagement Center (CFEC). The work of CFEC is focused primarily on underserved families and their students (low income, English learners, those with disabilities, those in foster care, migrants, homeless, and marginalized communities). Housed within the SC School Improvement Council (SC-SIC) at the University of South Carolina College of Education, CFEC seeks to engage stakeholders statewide through our website, social media platforms, and other venues.
CFEC aims to strengthen the abilities of families to take greater leadership roles in their children's education and build relationships with other parents through its Parent Leadership Partners (PLP) program. Parents are positioned to learn new strategies, build leadership skills, and be equipped to more effectively advocate for their children, families, and communities.
