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. Partnerships of families and school staff provide children with the adult supports they need to grow and face the challenges of learning and life. 

The goal of family-school partnerships have shifted over time, moving away from a focus on families supplementing school supports, compliance with federal or state requirements, and infrequent events, meetings, and communication. Family-school partnerships are now recognized as critical to student achievement and well-being, contributing to educator work satisfaction and school climate (Gorski, 2013).

The Maple Heghs City School District understands that families are critical stakeholders in supporting and advancing their children’s learning and development. Parents are a child’s first teacher and upon enrollment a partnership is formed that shares the responsibility of the child’s education and development.  Parents are welcomed and encouraged to be actively engaged in the success of the schools. Our focus is to ensure that there are meaningful opportunities to connect with our families, share essential resources and strengthen these essential partnerships. 

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