Family Engagement

The Family Engagement Work Team will work collaboratively to (1) connect families to resources and opportunities to increase their participation in literacy activities with their children at home, in school, and in the community, (2) support quality literacy experiences and resources for families, and (3) improve relationships and build trust between educators and families.

Rationale

Districts strategically align family engagement in the school community as one of their highest priorities. Teachers noted that families are the first teachers of their children. In addition, teachers believe that better relationships between families and teachers will lead to student success in the classroom. “Research show that supportive home learning experiences can help close the school readiness gap,” (National Science Foundation, 2011).

Strategy

Build, launch and sustain a marketing plan.
