Our standards for authentic and purposeful family engagement in our schools
- Strong Family and Community Ties: Families are encouraged and invited to build strong relationships with teachers, school staff and other parent communities. Schools create welcoming environments and help to deepen relationships across diverse groups of students, staff members and families.
- Meaningful Communication: Families and schools engage in meaningful two-way communication practices that are centered on their student’s wellbeing and academic success. Schools provide clear structures and expectations that support mutual communication with families.
- Authentic Voice & Leadership: Families work together with schools to authentically help inform policy and decision making. Schools invite families to participate in activities as equal partners to help shape school vision, student culture and strengthen student learning.
- Empowered Student Success: Families are acknowledged as their student’s first teacher and empowered to support student growth. Schools work with families to inform, encourage and support learning at home and in school, to make college for certain.
