Robbinsdale Area Schools

Achievement and Integration

Robbinsdale Area Schools strives to make all students and families feel empowered to believe in themselves, feel like they belong to an amazing school community, and become the person they see in their dreams.

The district's office of Achievement and Integration and Career and College Readiness is vital to that mission. The department is responsible for addressing issues of race and equity throughout the district, with the goal of becoming a school district free of institutional racism and inequities. 

The Achievement and Integration Department is home to the district's American Indian Education Program, community affinity groups, Family and Community Engagement (FACE) team, and a whole host of additional programs and offerings.

Family and Community Engagement

Family and Community Engagement Specialists, also known as the FACE team work to support district equity work, host family engagement events and provide various types of support with things like enrollment, transportation, technology and more. Our staff also assist with parent support at home, interpretation support and connect families with community resources.

Our FACE team leads our Parent Affinity Groups, where district families connect with other parents and learn about changes happening in the district. They also facilitate parent workshops that guide and teach families ways to engage with their student’s schools.
