Creating a School Culture of Family Engagement

Successful school communities empower and involve families at every level—not just for bake sales or school celebrations. The shift to a school culture of family engagement requires more shared decision-making, more communication and more resources, including designated staff:

  1. Implementing strong, democratic, decision-making school site councils that include students, parents and educators. 
  2. Hiring bilingual school family liaisons. 
  3. Providing translation and interpretation services at every school.
