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.
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.
Toolkit for Parental Involvement. Developed by the SEDL National Center for Family and Community Connections with Schools, this rich resource has the potential to guide and structure school and district staff eager to create or modify family involvement programming in ways that serve compliance with federal regulations and the need for positive outcomes.
