School Districts

This page is for school board members, school administrators, counselors or educators whose work supports the district as a whole.

Effective family partnerships improve the feel of a school and community. When family engagement practices are embedded in schools, staff say they have stronger relationships with students and their families, they feel like they are part of a community, they feel more connected, and they are less likely to want to leave the school.

After getting a better understanding of what family engagement and partnerships look like, I thought, ‘duh,’ how did I not see that partnering with families was actually an equity issue, and would result in better outcomes for my students.
