Family Engagement Workshop
ISBE Foundational Services
Family Engagement training provides a foundational level of support for facilitators who will be training others to support school/district teams in developing and expanding school-family partnerships. This training is aligned to the Illinois State Board of Education’s Family Engagement Framework.
Meaningful Family Engagement is based on the premise that parents, educators, and community members share responsibility for youth development. It is fostered through a deliberate process and embraced throughout the school community. It empowers adults to jointly support student growth and address barriers to learning and is mindful of diverse school-communities and responsive to student and family needs.
This program is fully (100%) funded by the United States Department of Education using No Child Left Behind, Title I Part A Funds ($3,920,000.00), through a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education, Statewide System of Support funds.
