Saving Faces

Key Takeaways


FACES support employees to be eliminated


FACES centers that provide services to the students and community

Approximately 100 people filled the trustee meeting, many speaking passionately during public comment about the difference the FACES program made to them, their children, and their families.

Others submitted written comments, and all held signs in support of FACES. Currently, 10 sites exist in Title 1 schools to help those families most in need.

CCSD plans to reorganize the Department, eliminating up to four of the ten sites. CCSD has also eliminated all of the current 27 employees (mostly minority and long-term women) of FACES who provide the direct care.

CCSD has provided no plan for the continuation of services to the students and community.

ESEA President Jan Giles called on the Trustees to keep the onsite hands-on services to the families and children with our professional staff, who are also important role models in their communities.

ESEA is moving on next steps to protect these workers, families, and students.
