Our Mission

1647 prepares educators to engage all families in equal partnerships that are essential to student success.

1647 believes that every family wants what is best for their child.  When schools build trusting relationships with all families, true school-family partnerships take root that empower all parents to support their child's success in school.

The 1647 team challenges school leaders and teachers to reimagine family engagement. We train and support educators to implement strategies, including teacher home visits, ongoing communication, and academic partnerships, which directly support student success.
