5 DEFINING FAMILY PARTNERSHIP

6 DEFINITION OF FAMILY ENGAGEMENT Family engagement is: A shared responsibility in which schools and other community agencies and organizations are committed to engaging families in meaningful and culturally respectful ways, and families are committed to actively supporting their children’s learning and development. Continuous across a child’s life, spanning from Early Head Start programs to college preparation high schools. Carried out everywhere that children learn – at home, in pre-kindergarten programs, in school, in after-school programs, in faith-based institutions, and in community programs and activities.

7 WHAT THE LITERATURE TELLS US ABOUT PARENT & FAMILY ENGAGEMENT Studies of families show that what the family does with children is more important to student success than family income or the education level of the parents. Both students and schools benefit from active participation by families in the process of education children. Parent involvement is more than good attendance at school-sponsored events or having a strong volunteer program The need for strong family involvement starts by the time children are in preschool and continues through high school. Take from Dr. Tim Lewis, Chicago National PBIS Conference

10 Core Belief #1: All parents have dreams for their children and want the best for them Core Belief #2: All parents have the capacity to support their child’s learning Core Belief #3: Parents and school staff should be equal partners Core Belief #4: The responsibility for building partnerships between school and home rests primarily with school staff, especially school leaders Successful Partnerships Begin With Positive Beliefs about Families Taken from Beyond the Bake Sale
