Recognizing that families are students' first teachers and can become allies in increasing student achievement, it is essential to engage families in a strategic, effective and welcoming way.
Review the resources on how coordinators can engage families in the academic and non-academic progress of their children.
If you have more questions or want to share best practices, please feel free to post here. Remember, this is a private space for coordinators.
The Institute for Educational Leadership houses the District Leader Network on Family and Community Engagement Network (FCE). The FCE Network is a peer network designed to bring together district leaders from across the nation and provide the most up-to-date resources, professional development, and best practices to ultimately improve student achievement. Each year the Network hosts a National Meeting and Learning Lab to discuss the Federal Landscape and introduce the new and innovative ideas taking place. We are looking forward to providing you with new tools and working together to engage the communities and families in your districts.
Reach out to your district leaders to join! Contact Heather Naviasky @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the network!
