Families Overview

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.
