Family engagement should be intentional. It's not just having parents come in for a spaghetti dinner. Effective family engagement should be centered around student and family learning. Additionally by including school staff in the planning process creates an opportunity for developing stronger relationships between the families, school staff and community schools staff.

Family Engagement changes when families are asked to take ownership in the strategies and solutions.
