Family Engagement

Family engagement is the process used to build genuine relationships with families. Relationships with families support overall family well-being and children's healthy development.  Family engagement is based on the idea that parents and others who care for their children work together to prepare children for success.

When a school actively engages its families, the benefits far outweigh the effort.
