Family and Community Involvement

Advisory Committee (FCIAC)

The Family and Community Involvement Advisory Committee was established in 1993 to support the work of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools' Office of Community Engagement.  Under School Board Policy 2111, PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT - A HOME-SCHOOL-DISTRICT PARTNERSHIP, the Committee is authorized to assess the progress in implementing this policy using outcome based data, including, but not limited to, the School Climate Survey and the Educational Engagement Survey, and will make written recommendations for improvement.  The Committee may undertake specific projects which are within the scope of its purpose.


There will be 37 voting members, a majority of whom will be persons not employed by Miami-Dade County Public Schools


Monthly meetings are open to the public and are currently being hosted virtually.
