Parent and Family Engagement

 

parent and family engagement word cloud

 

The Title I, Part A program insists on robust Parent and Family Engagement (PFE) activities at every school where federal funds support effective teaching and engaged learning. Title I, Part A has one of the strongest PFE components of all Title federal programs. PFE in a child’s education is a greater predictor of academic success than whether or not that family is affluent or poor. 

“Family engagement refers to the systematic inclusion of families in activities and programs that promote children’s development, learning, and wellness, including in the planning, development, and evaluation of such activities, programs, and systems.” – U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Policy Statement On Family Engagement From The Early Years To The Early Grades, 2016
