Research has consistently shown that when schools and families work together to support learning, everyone benefits: students do better in school and in life, parents become empowered, schools get better, communities grow stronger. To that effect, the Office of Family Engagement and Equity aims to build school, home and community partnerships to establish more inclusive and culturally informed support networks for parents, encourage parent advocacy and promote parental involvement in their children’s education.
The Office of Family Engagement and Equity together with family engagement site coordinators strives to equip parents with necessary information, skills, and ability to effectively navigate the school system, support their children’s success in school and engage them in school leadership opportunities. The family engagement site coordinators also provide direct support to parents and caregivers in need of resources or information to address concerns about their children and conduct parent outreach efforts for events and programs.
