Family Engagement: One More Compliance Box or A Real Strategy for Student Success?

Everyone loves family engagement. But far fewer people believe that quality family engagement can lead to increased student learning. In this session, we will talk first about how we define and think about "family engagement” in our schools and districts. And we’ll tackle the research: What kinds of family engagement programs work? What kinds don’t? We’ll then talk about districts that successfully engage low-income parents in academics (with success defined as improved student outcomes) and how they do that. Last, we’ll cover some promising practices from nonprofits that have proven to better involve families in their children’s schools.
