Family Engagement Matters!
All parents want their children to do well in school. When parents participate, children achieve. They learn more, earn higher grades, and have better school attendance. What does parent involvement mean? How can parents and schools work together to help students learn? The Minnesota Statewide Family Engagement Center can help you find answers.
The Minnesota Statewide Family Engagement Center aims to increase students’ academic achievement by supporting families and educators through a variety of free services, such as workshops, webinars, in-services, and presentations.
The Center’s multicultural staff can answer questions from families about their child’s learning and school-related issues. Schools and educators can learn how to build stronger family-school partnerships and communicate more effectively with parents.
Topics of services for families and educators include:
- Improving home-school communication
- Supporting students with culturally responsive teaching and learning strategies
- Understanding school choice options
- Increasing academic achievement
- Strengthening school readiness
- Enhancing family literacy
Parents are their child’s best advocates.
