HOLISTIC FAMILY ENGAGEMENT
Effective family engagement begins with trusting relationships between schools and families. School leaders and educators must create a school culture that pro-actively seeks to involve all families and welcomes them as equal partners in their child's education. A holistic family engagement strategy combines community building events with actions that focus on student learning.
