Resources for Family & Community Involvement
Partners in Education
A new framework from the U.S. Department of Education — Partners in Education — focuses on the ways families, schools, districts, states and communities can build capacity for student achievement and school improvement. That’s why Title I, Part A program regulations insist on robust family involvement activities at every school where these federal funds support effective teaching and engaged learning.
Parent Involvement —
Wisconsin’s Resource Kit
The Title I, Part A team has done an outstanding job of developing and assembling smart programming tools for family/parent involvement.
- Start with the Road Map Through the School Year — a planning tool that synchs with the school calendar.
- Look for policy checklists, samples and templates, parent surveys, presentations that will inspire and inform your family engagement programming, sample compacts and notifications, training materials and smart resources for community partnerships.
