Beyond Random Acts…Family Engagement in Community Schools
Everyone agrees that family engagement is important and bemoans the lack of parental involvement. Unfortunately, many schools struggle to connect meaningfully with their children’s families no matter how vital this connection is to student academic success.
About The Forum
Learn about the Dual Capacity Framework for Family-School Partnerships from Dr. Karen Mapp of the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Learn how to implement the Framework from Teneh Weller and other local Bay Area family engagement practitioners. Dr. Mapp’s framework guides principals, teachers and parents on their common journey toward effective family engagement that drives school improvement and student achievement.
