Family engagement facilitator Ms. Velvet Coleman provides support to families of students grades pre-K – 2nd who attend our six elementary schools.

Recently featured in Charlottesville Tomorrow, Ms. Coleman can be seen throughout the city in schools, homes, community centers, and even bus stops connecting with students and their families.

At the January school board meeting, she shared an impressive overview of her efforts during her first six months on the job.

“I’m so thrilled that we have you.” said school board vice-chair Sherry Kraft, commending Coleman for her work to build connections between school and home.
