Equitable Family Engagement
What is Equitable Family Engagement?
Recognition that systemic inequities exist in our educational system that create barriers for families and students based on race, ethnicity, language, socio-economics, ability, and more. To address this we must:
- Honor the family wisdom and expertise of those who are impacted as a result of these inequities.
- Partner with families to address inequities, support students holistically, and to create positive school cultures for all.
- Collaborate in leadership and decision making.
We partner with families to support students impacted by systemic racism and those furthest from educational justice by providing family-centered engagement opportunities. We use an asset-based model to identify and cultivate skills and resources to address complex systemic barriers by centering family leadership, engagement, and advocacy to support student success.
