Family Engagement Team

What is Family Engagement?

Family engagement in schools is a shared responsibility in which schools and other community agencies and organizations are committed to reaching out to engage parents in meaningful ways, and the parents are committed to actively supporting their children's and adolescents' learning and development.

Family engagement, using a strength-based approach will promote change by intentionally establishing and maintaining relationships with families to accomplish change together. Family empowerment is the act of engaging, involving, and lifting up the voice of families to support students.


Listed below are several ways that our district’s family engagement team can assist:

  1. Family Engagement Coordinators work with ALL families within the District. Our cultural experiences are a part of our background and enhance the way we work.

  2. We collaborate on opportunities by providing culturally relevant ways for families and students. Our goal is to increase participation and involvement with our families and community members regarding activities and initiatives within our District.

  3. We respond to individual family requests for support by connecting families with school, District or community-based resources.

  4. We work proactively with staff and families to engage and collaborate for student success, as well as increase understanding regarding equity throughout our work.

  5. Family Engagement Coordinators meet with parents and principals regarding concerns or complaints and work with school staff and parents towards a resolution of the issue.  

  6. We support family engagement work of various departments including Special Education, Technology, Behavior Support, LST/CLT, CCCR, as well as other District departments and divisions.

  7. We provide culturally responsive resources and professional learning to District staff.

  8. We represent the Equity Department in various District and school level teams, as needed.

  9. We identify and collaborate with key community organizations who serve and provide resources to students and families.

  10. We promote and assist with Family Events and Transition Events.
