Family engagement should transform the lives of every child in America. That’s why we are investing in our mission with the Center for Family Engagement®. Through a focus on grassroots leadership development, the Center for Family Engagement® aims to embed transformative family engagement practices, programs and policies across the educational system so that every parent is treated as a valuable partner in their child’s education.
Over the next three years, the Center for Family Engagement® will …
- Raise awareness about transformative family engagement among PTA members and leaders by acting as a clearinghouse of innovative approaches, cutting-edge research, and best practices that PTAs can put into action
- Empower PTAs across the country to be leaders in transformative family engagement efforts through grant and recognition opportunities, as well as connections to other leading family engagement organizations
- Influence transformative family engagement decisions and resources by contributing to a national research agenda on how parent voice shapes family engagement programs, practices, and policies
