Family and Community Engagement


The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) envisions schools will make a mindset shift and move from involving families to engaging families to ultimately empowering families. Family Engagement is a key factor in the success of students and schools. Family engagement is one of five predictors in school improvement (Organizing Schools for Improvement: Lessons from Chicago. Chicago: University of Chicago Press), and cannot be seen as an add on, but instead should be seen as a part of teaching and learning (Dr. Karen Mapp, 3 Prerequisites of Effective Family and Community Engagement). Although not a program, a commitment to family engagement should be a priority of Tier 1 instruction.
