• An overview of family and community engagement practices, then and now

• Tools for evaluating family and community engagement

After attending these sessions, participants will be able to:

• Choose and use at least one tool for evaluating family and community engagement in their districts and buildings
• Describe evidence based frameworks for family and community engagement
• Create an action plan for the 2021-2022 school year to align family engagement practices with school improvement plans.
