System of Support for Parent, Family, Community, and School Partnerships

System of Support for Parent, Family, Community, and School Partnerships

With concerns of academic support during time away from school intentional processes that engaged families and the school community to focus on students, schools and families have shifted in how they communicate and support one another. Families are more responsible for supporting their children’s learning at home. In many cases teachers are reaching into each family’s home to help guide student learning through a new variety of engagement methods. Engaging all families will require true partnerships, and the building of mutual trust and respect to ensure every student has the

opportunity to participate in equitable learning is a priority.

Participants will examine the national and local contexts of how K-12 school leaders can effectively engage families and the community in all students’ academic and nonacademic success. Participants will examine the gaps and identify obstacles that challenge improvement efforts, as well as provide equity and identify supports for increasing student achievement. Through the exploration of research, the examination of present family and community engagement plans, and the review of best practices, leaders will develop options for improving their local plans and ensuring that ALL stakeholders representing a school and its diverse community are engaged in planning and sharing responsibility for student achievement.

The intended audience for this professional learning includes superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals, federal programs directors, assistant principals, counselors, lead teachers, parent leaders, and community leaders.

Following participation in the 2 day professional learning, districts will have an opportunity to be engaged in a Guiding Coalition that will examine qualitative data from all stakeholders (including students, families, teachers, and leaders) to apply learning focusing strategically on equity and high achievement for all students and inclusive of ALL families.

Representatives from each school within a district will engage in the strategic thinking process to begin identifying the gaps in the plan for PFCE while recognizing the gaps for ALL students and families. This coalition will begin the design of a system for PFCE and the implementation of a plan that focuses on the engagement of all stakeholders. The school teams will study and strategically think through the development of a partnership that strives to effectively involve ALL families

but especially with students who are struggling academically as required by ESSA and the MDE.
