23 Nov, 2020

Effective family engagement is an intentional and systematic partnership of educators, families, and community members who share the responsibility for a student’s preparation for school, work, and life. Successful family engagement is much more than a check the box exercise – it is a centralized series of strategies that benefits individual students and whole schools.

This toolkit will provide charter school leaders and charter school operators with an understanding of:

  • How family engagement strategies can influence the core work of charter schools
  • How to build out a comprehensive schoolwide plan for family engagement
  • Strategies to support authentic, inclusive family engagement
  • What family engagement can look like at each point in the charter school life cycle, from design and
  • opening through replication and expansion or closure
