The Importance of Family Engagement

Family Engagement is:
a shared responsibility among families, schools, and communities in which schools and community organizations are committed to reaching out to engage families in meaningful ways and families are committed to actively supporting their children's learning and development. We value the infl?uence of family on a child's well-being and are committed to all families being informed and engaged as powerful advocates for their children.

Why Focus on Family Engagement:
Over 40 years of steadily accumulating evidence show that family engagement is one of the strongest predictors of children's school success. When family engagement is implemented effectively, families, educators, and communities work together to support families to effectively impact children's:
  • Brain development
  • Language acquisition
  • Self regulation
  • Graduation rates
  • Pursuit and persistence of post secondary education
